Dear members and friends of HOLA,
It is with great sadness that we must inform you of the passing of Francisco Gutiérrez Rivela, of HOLA.
Francisco died suddenly and unexpectedly last Tuesday evening from cardiac arrest. He died as he lived, with intensity and passion.
As you all know, Francisco was an incomparable force in the Spanish language media and arts as an actor, director, writer and announcer. He was hugely influential and dedicated to all aspects of HOLA throughout the years. We hope that his many colleagues continue his efforts to help preserve this great organization.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to HOLA.
Dr. Alina Segura-Bustamante
