By Zoila Palma Gonzales: Joe Garcia, the husband of Irma Garcia, who taught for 23 years at Robb Elementary School died today of a heart attack.

During an interview with The New York Times following Tuesday’s deadly shooting, Joe said that officers found his wife, “embracing children in her arms pretty much until her last breath”.

The father of 4 reportedly went to take flowers at his wife’s memorial. When Garcia returned home, he suffered a heart attack and died.

John Martinez, the nephew of Mrs. Garcia tweeted that “Tia Irma’s husband Joe Garcia has passed away due to grief”. The couple had been married for 24 years and leave behind 4 children.

Nineteen children and 2 teachers were killed when the gunman, Salvador Ramos,18, barricaded himself in a classroom and opened fire.
