Former OBITUARY Guitarist Ralph Santolla to Be Taken off Life Support
If you've been following this tragic story, this shouldn't come as much of a surprise, but Ralph Santolla is going to be taken off life support.
The former Deicide and Obituary guitarist fell into a coma after suffering a heart attack last week. After his mother revealed things were not looking good yesterday, his son,Dorian Angelo Santolla, broke the news of the sad eventuality:
“We are going to take my father off of assisted living on Wednesday. If any of his friends would like to say goodbye, the family will welcome you at St. Joseph’s tomorrow (Tuesday). He would appreciate the love. Thank you ❤”
Ralph's mother, Sue, revealed that Ralph has some unreleased recordings with his last band, Devil’s Highway, that will be revealed soon:
“Ralph Santolla in an organ donor so he will live on. Those recipients don’t know what they are getting until they suddenly become sarcastic, funny, get tattoos, start playing guitar. One other thing, Devil’s Highway was getting close to completion. It will be done and that is a Ralph’s legacy. “
Santolla is only 48 years old. Our sincerest and deepest condolences to his family and friends.
