On Tuesday, May 19, 2020, Benny Garza III was brought to the tender embrace of God. Benny was a native of Laredo, Texas.
His professional life began as an Air Force, PFC, following his entrepreneurial impulse that eventually lead him to starting a successful business named Laredo Home Theater. What harnessed his skills and charming personality was a long career in safety management, where he provided the best of service to many established businesses while spending four full years in Afghanistan as a designated country-safety manager. For his last job, he was called to work on a major project for Amazon, highlighting his career as an essential worker during the COVID-19 crisis. He was a passionate father, a selfless provider who prioritized taking care of his family, audiophile, car enthusiast, expert grill master, adventurer of all sorts, a grand entertainer, a power-house of energy and classy humor, a man who truly evoked pure joy just with being presence. His fine taste was reflected in aesthetics, food, movies, games, music, and more. If anyone lacked a smile, he would give you one of his.
In 2020 he started anew with high hopes of living a life of bliss with his new devout bride.
