El Paso — El Pasoans are reeling from the news tha tlong time TV Journalist John Garmon has passed away after getting hit by a car over the last weekend in January.
Mike Wilburn is a photographer for KTSM and he says he worked with Garmon for several years.
"One time we were out covering an escaped convict from La Tuna, and we lost all communications from the station. And he looked at me and said 'You know what you're doing, I know what I'm doing, let's get it done.' Sure enough to the second when we hit the live shot we were on the money, on the dime," Wilburn says.
The photographer's wife also worked with the late newscaster when he worked as a Salesman at a local store. She says he was a real nice man who's central focus in life was his family.
