Spurs to honor SAFD firefighter before preseason game

As San Antonio continues to mourn a longtime public servant who died in an accident on Tuesday, the Spurs will also pay tribute on Friday evening.

SAN ANTONIO — Before the Spurs finish their preseason tune-up against the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday evening, the team will honor a fallen public servant. 

A Spurs Sports and Entertainment spokesperson confirmed to KENS 5 that the team will be holding a moment of silence before the National Anthem in honor of Greg Garza, the 17-year San Antonio Fire Department veteran who died in a tragic accident Tuesday morning. 

Flags throughout the city were lowered to half-staff on Tuesday out of respect for Garza and his family, and Mayor Ron Nirenberg and Fire Chief Charles Hood offered prayers and patience.
