Joe Garcia: Irma Garcia’s husband dies from Heart attack
The husband of Irma Garcia, the slain 4th-grade teacher who died in the Texas school shooting has passed away from a heart attack.
Irma’s husband, Joe Garcia, died on Thursday, the pair’s nephew announced.
“It is with great sadness that I inform you that my Tia Irma’s husband Joe Garcia has gone away due to grief,” the family member said.
“I genuinely don’t know how to express how we all feel; PLEASE PRAY FOR OUR FAMILY, God have pity on us, this isn’t easy.”
In a GoFundMe shared online by the duos family, cousin Debra Garcia Austin wrote that Joe passed away on Thursday morning “as a result of a medical emergency.”
“I truly believe Joe died of a broken heart and losing the love of his life of more than 30 years was too much to bear,” Austin wrote.
Joe and Irma were high school sweethearts and were married for 24 years. They leave behind four children.
