Emilio was a very special and unique being. From his style and taste in music to the random things he would collect and to his garden he loved. He was a person that knew something about everything. He was absolutely one of a kind. His humor can sometimes be crude and dark but has always kept the people around him laughing. His beautiful smile and laugh were infectious. He loved music almost as much as he loved being an uncle. He picked up the guitar when he was 12, shortly after his older brother began to play. Emilio was so passionate about guitar and it showed instantly. He spent a lot of time making music with his friends. He spent countless hours playing in the basement of his home which his mom adored hearing. Emilio wanted to cook for his loved ones or give out an invitation to the backyard cookout. He enjoyed being outside especially fishing with his dad. He was kind and free spirited. He will be missed immensely.” The family would like everyone to please wear a mask and practice social distancing while attending the visitation and funeral.
