Wallingford resident and my dear friend Felipe Canete passed away tragically yesterday from an apparent heart attack/failure. You may have seen him around the neighborhood with his son Rio Malai and wife Katy Canete. He was far too young, at 35 years of age. He performed with bands Luc and the Lovingtons and Sing with Señor.
Soleil, Felipe’s business partner and band-mate, notes that they had a performance scheduled at Alphabet Soup for June 8th, which has obviously been canceled, and said there may be a small musical event to “pay tribute to his legacy of positivity, love and smiles.”
Our heart goes out to his wife and son and all those who loved him.
