Very sad news.

Former DeathIced EarthDeicide and Obituary guitarist Ralph Santolla has died after a few days in a coma at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa, Florida, having suffering a heart attack last Tuesday night.

He was taken off life support last night around 11:00 p.m. He was 51 years old.

Bill Hudson, close friend of the Santolla’s and guitarist in I Am Morbid, wrote the following on Facebook:

NOW It is official: I (and many others) just lost my best friend, as well as one of the most underrated guitarists in all history.

He passed away peacefully surrounded by about 10 of his closest friends and family (myself included). Please keep his mother Sue Santolla-Rocha, his son Dorian Angelo Santolla and all the rest of us in your thoughts…

Rest In Peace, my brother Ralph Santolla… You will be missed by A LOT of people…

I love you bro”

Santolla’s family members are donating his organs to patients in need. 

Those recipients don’t know what they are getting until they suddenly become sarcastic, funny, get tattoos, start playing guitar,” his mother has said.
