Pollo was born on September 19, 1977 in Ojinaga, Chihuahua, Mexico to Alberto Garcia Flores and Candida Armendariz Flores. He was raised in Andrews and graduated from Andrews High School in 1996 and attended Odessa College for several years. He moved to Lubbock, where he had managed a shoe store. He then moved to Dallas, where he started a garage door business. During these times, Pollo moved back home and sacrificed everything, so his parents could live with him while they were sick, even while he was working. He continued to do this the rest of his life for them. He had also worked for his brothers, Flavio and Saul, and C&S Home Construction. In the last several years, he had been a self-employed contractor and working especially on painting, staining, woodworking, and custom cabinets. He was very well liked and respected by the many clients he worked with over all these years and very talented in his trade of work.
Pollo loved the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Dallas Cowboys. He enjoyed traveling all over, especially Europe, and enjoyed cooking with and for his family. He played and managed in the Andrews Men’s Softball League for over 20 years and also played on a men’s travel softball team. He will be remembered for having a big heart and having an unconditional love for everyone and not judging anyone. He had a great sense of humor, was funny, humble and kind, and very social with everyone. He loved spending time with all of his family and friends and being supportive to all of them. His nephews and nieces meant the world to him, and he supported and traveled to their events and games. He loved taking them to the movies and shopping and would take as many as he could each time. He was their hero, and he was their #1 fan. He loved his friends dearly and was always there to support them or help them out. He always made time for his friends and was there for them no matter the time or day. Everyone knew Pollo and loved him very much for who he was.
