It is always a tragedy when someone so young loses his life, made even worse by the fact that he was from Mexico and died so far away from home.
I have not been able to find much information about him, or how long he had been at Linton Hall Military School before he died. He arrived to Idlewild (now JFK) Airport in New York City on June 14, 1954 from Mexico City. He had a sister, Raquel Facha García (her name would have changed if she married) who was a year or two older, and probably a younger sister, named Maria Teresa. His mother's name could have also been Raquel.
"De sus padres" at the bottom of the grave means "from his parents" meaning that his parents had the grave marker made.
(I have found a different, likely unrelated Eduardo Facha García, on the Internet.)
God bless you, Eduardo. May you rest in peace.
Que Dios te bendiga, Eduardo. Descansa en paz.
