Larry Benson, the owner of Ingram Park Auto Center in San Antonio, has died.

He had been traveling in Europe and was in Italy at the time of his death Monday.

Benson, who also was CEO of Benson Enterprises, held a business administration degree from Louisiana State University and got his doctorate at St. Mary's University.

Benson was the ceremonial "El Rey Feo LXV" at this past April's Fiesta celebration in San Antonio. The El Rey Feo organization raises money for college scholarships for San Antonio-area students.

Benson himself made a $1.5 million donation to St. Anthony Catholic School prior to Fiesta.

There was no immediate word on the cause of death. Funeral arrangements are pending.
