    Notes 
    • Jorge, my father, studied medicine yet never graduaded from the prominent military school in Mexico City. He was in the Air Force and continued being a pilot for most of his life, he had several airplanes and a sailboat. He was a mountainclimber and avid sportsman, hunting and fishing. He was the National Commissioner for the Boy Scouts of America and they had an honour guard posted at his funeral service (it was beautiful). At one time he was the owner of 5 electronic assembly plants in Tijuana producing TV's for Fairchild Electronics (Sears) and many other businesses. After open heart surgery in 1973 he was given a 5 year survival date and decided to retire and become a citizen of the world. He traveled world wide his whole life and more so once retired, living once for 2 years in a motor home which he took all around the world. He was very adventursome and liked challenges.
      He was an ebanist and taught me to finish and carve wood, and to repair my cars. He was very mechanical. [Belina Garcia]
