Joe Garcia, the husband of Irma Garcia, a teacher who was killed in the Texas school shooting, passed away after collapsing and dying while preparing for his wife’s burial. Irma Garcia was one of the victims of the massacre. They had been married since they were teenagers, and she was killed on Tuesday at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, where she was teaching. Since then, a GoFundMe has been established for their four kids. John Martinez, the nephew of Irma Garcia, has remarked that he is at a loss for words when it comes to expressing his feelings towards Joe Garcia. He just can’t take it in. And refuse to accept the obvious.
What happened To Joe Garcia and Irma Garcia?
Last April, Joe Garcia celebrated his 50th birthday. When she passed away, Irma Garcia was 46 years old. The medical professionals who examined Joe’s body determined that he had died from “broken heart syndrome,” which is more properly known as takotsubo cardiomyopathy. This is a common reaction in cases of intense stress, such as the sudden loss of a spouse. People who have typical heart attacks have their arteries completely closed off. Traumatic stress hormone surges prevent normal cardiac contraction in those with shattered heart syndrome. Eighteen students and two teachers, including Irma and Eva Mireles, were shot and murdered.

The couple has been together for 24 years and has four children: Cristian, Jose, Lilyana, and Alyssandra, now ages 23, 19, 15, and 12, respectively. When discussing the Martinez family, John Martinez told the Washington Post that the family consists of wonderful individuals. Everyone in the family is wonderful. That’s unfair to them. Irma Garcia’s cousin Debra Austin has organised a fundraising event. Already, more than $2,000,000.00 has been donated to the GoFundMe campaign.
Debra Austin also said that Joe Garcia passed away from a “broken heart” and that the pain of losing the love of his life after more than 25 years was too much for him to handle. It stated that Joe Garcia’s death was the cause of her demise. To help support their four kids, the couple organised a charity event. Donations from John Martinez’s For Joe and Irma Garcia Family” raised $557,432. This was the greatest single gift. The Texas state senator John Whitmire told CNN on Wednesday that the gunman, Salvador Ramos, lawfully acquired two AR-15 weapons two days before the school tragedy. After the police slew Ramos, one was discovered near his body.
Members of the Border Patrol Tactical Unit carried out the brave assault on the school gunman. Reports indicate that the special agents used force to enter the classroom where Ramos was hiding. Three agents entered the classroom simultaneously, and while one diverted the shooter’s attention, another was injured by shrapnel, and the third successfully took down Ramos.
