Tulio Murillo, Obituary, Death – By now, everyone has been notified…I’m at a loss for words in light of this terrible and startling news. Treces del Sur is saddened to learn of the passing of Tulio Murillo, a fan and dear friend. Tulio offered us a platform since he has appreciated our music and wanted us to be noticed from the beginning. We are grateful for his honesty and support as a community.
As a reporter, photographer, and filmmaker for the Times Picayune for ten years straight starting at the very beginning, I am grateful to Tulio for giving me the chance to lead and represent Kenner Fest. He had a quiet voice but made decisions with conviction. Tulio never hesitated to take the time to talk to me and recently assisted me with a private matter. His wife, daughter, family, and closest friends have my sincere compassion and condolences. We will sincerely miss Tulio. I’m grateful. Tulio, rest in peace. Treces of the South.
Check out this quick movie of Tulio. He was grinning and taking pleasure in the rewards of his efforts for Latin music and culture. Chacon, Ignacio
