Joe Garcia was 50 years old and had just returned home to leave flowers to his wife's memorial when he just fell

"Today marks an important step on the path of a new exciting chapter in the history of the Broncos,"

said the president and chief executive officer of the Joe Ellis team in a press release.

Walton is one of the heirs of Walmart's fortune, which was founded by his father Sam Walton. 

Buyers also include the president of Walmart, Greg Penner, and his wife Carrie Walton Penner, who is also the daughter of Rob Walton.
