In Memory of Geo

On August 18, 2019, our good friend and long time employee here at Garden Catering, Geovanny "Geo" Tapia-Zuniga (33), passed away suddenly & tragically while spending the day at the lake with his family.

Geo was a huge part of our Garden Catering family and worked at our Downtown Stamford location for the past 6 years.  He was a great friend, a hard-working employee and devoted family man. Geo was an amazing father to his 5-year old son Jeremy Tapia and a devoted husband to his wife Luz Magaly Ordonez- Matute . He worked hard to support his family as well as his father who is battling cancer.  He also played a strong role in his niece, Paola's life.  Geo helped to support her through nursing school and she was always there to assist with helping to care for their son when needed. 

Geo was born in Ecuador where he will be laid to rest. The family needs all the support they can get to help off-set these unexpected costs so please donate whatever you can to helping this young family in the face of an unspeakable tragedy.
