Garcia was adopted from India at 3 months old and as a teenager worked with the Glorieta Pass Volunteer Fire Department before graduating from the Fire Academy in 2007 and served in the Santa Fe County Fire Department. Those who knew him say he always wanted to pay it forward and help people.

Garcia died in 2012 at the age of 25 from an aortic dissection. Last year, Santa Fe county commissioners made January 12, 2021, Isaac Garcia Day.
