Greg O’Donnell, stepfather to Mayor Robert Garcia passed away due to complications from COVID-19.

“We are incredibly saddened to share that my stepfather, Greg O’Donnell, has passed away due to complications from COVID-19. It’s a heartbreaking loss for our entire family, especially for my brother Jake,” said Garcia in a statement released earlier today.

O’Donnell passed away one day after his late wife’s memorial service. He was married to Garcia’s mother for 27 years and he started his own business as a contractor with his brothers.

“Jake and I want to thank the heroic nurses and doctors who cared for him in his last days. My brother posted the following and I completely agree. As my family is just broken with the loss of my parents—I find comfort in knowing that they are together again—free of any pain or suffering,” said Garcia.

Our condolences go out to the mayor’s family.
