This Saturday, May 7,  a community park located within the new Pettigrew Place neighborhood in east Bend will be dedicated in Rolando Garcia’s honor. In addition to Saturday’s park dedication, a cul-de-sac currently under construction in Pettigrew Place will be named Rolo Court. 

Rolando “Rolo” Garcia, a longtime fixture of Bend’s building community, died unexpectedly of a heart aneurysm on Christmas Day. A concrete foreman for Fire and Ice Concrete, the 41-year-old Garcia was responsible for installing all Hayden Homes sidewalks, patios, driveways and porches in Central Oregon for the past 16 years. He left behind his​​ wife, Maria, and two sons, Orlando, 20, and Jason, 18. 

Hayden Homes and Fire and Ice co-workers, as well as the Summit High School community where his sons played football, have rallied to support the Garcia family with donations to a 529 Education Savings Plan — ensuring that both Orlando and Jason can attend college. 

Additionally, as a gesture of gratitude for Garcia’s 16 years of service, Hayden Homes last week donated $10,000 to the family.
