March 6, 1945 – October 7, 2019

Jose “JoeMoe” A. Garza, age 74 of Ferris, Texas, passed away Oct. 7, 2019 surrounded by his loving family.

Joe was born in March of 1945 to the late Placido and Celina (Hinojosa) Garza in Matamoros, Tamaulipas, Mexico, moving on to Ferris when he was 8 years old. As a truck driver, he was known on the radio by his handle, “The Lone Wolf”. He traveled all over the U.S. and drove his family on vacations as they explored the many different landscapes of the Country. JoeMoe loved working with his hands making models, painting and creating other wood craft projects. Growing up in a musical family, he and his brothers loved to play music in their garage. He is remembered for being good with words and writing songs and singing them for his family. Joe’s adoring grandchildren will miss the tickles and total interaction he gave them. The Dallas Cowboys will miss a truly dedicated fan. He will be missed by all who knew him.
