Vinny Garcia of The Bleeding Heart Bakery Has Passed Away

Vinny Garcia - Bleeding Heart Bakery Chicago

It is with a heavy heart that I share the sad news of beloved cakemaker Vinny Garcia’s passing on Dec 1, 2013.

My heart goes out to Michelle, their children and all survived by Vinny.  He will be greatly missed.

Former Bleeding Heart Bakery owner Vinny Garcia passed away yesterday from leukemia complications. Garcia’s decline in health and ultimate passing was a shock since he was diagnosed a little more than a month ago and had begun treatment soon after. Garcia is survived by his wife Michelle and three children.

If you would like to help the Garcia’s or learn more about the funeral details, please visit their Go Fund Me page, set up by Michelle to offset the medical bills they are facing. Michelle writes in detail about Vinny’s physical ordeals on the page as well.
