Members of the Feast of the Blessed Sacrament Committee are remembering 85-year-old Manuel Garcia of Onset, who was found in waters off Onset on Tuesday. He was pronounced dead at Tobey Hospital.

For many years, Garcia was the kitchen manager at the feast, and spokesman Edward Camara tells WBSM News, Garcia will be hard to replace.

Camara called Garcia a man of many talents, and he will be missed.

This is the 100th year of the Feast of the Blessed Sacrament in New Bedford.
