Husband of Teacher Killed in Texas School Shooting Passes Away of Heart Attack


Joe Garcia, the husband of teacher Irma Garcia, who was killed on Tuesday in the Uvalde, Texas, school shooting, has died of an apparent heart attack.

According to the family of Irma Garcia, one of two teachers killed in Tuesday’s mass shooting, her husband of 24 years, Joe Garcia, has now died.

“EXTREMELY heartbreaking and come with deep sorrow to say that my Tia Irma’s husband Joe Garcia has passed away due to grief, I truly am at a loss for words for how we are all feeling, PLEASE PRAY FOR OUR FAMILY, God have mercy on us, this isn’t easy,” Garcia’s nephew, John Martinez, tweeted.

“Joe Garcia, the husband of Irma Garcia, one of two teachers shot and killed in Uvalde, TX on Tuesday, has reportedly suffered a fatal heart attack. Joe and Irma were high school sweethearts and married 24 years. They leave behind four children,” KABB FOX San Antonio reporter Ernie Zuniga tweeted.

Irma Garcia reportedly died trying to protect the children in her classroom.
