As reported earlier this week guitarist Ralph Santolla (ex-Deicide and Obituary) fell into a coma after suffering a heart attack. After his mother Sue revealed things were not looking good during this week, his son, Dorian Angelo Santolla, broke the sad news that his father is going to be taken off life support today June 6th, 2018:

“We are going to take my father off of assisted living on Wednesday. If any of his friends would like to say goodbye, the family will welcome you at St. Joseph’s tomorrow (Tuesday). He would appreciate the love. Thank you ?”

Ralph's mother also revealed that Ralph has some unreleased trackings with his last band, Devil’s Highway, which should be released soon:

“Ralph Santolla is an organ donor so he will live on. Those recipients don’t know what they are getting until they suddenly become sarcastic, funny, get tattoos, start playing guitar. One other thing, Devil’s Highway was getting close to completion. It will be done and that is a Ralph’s legacy. “

Ralph Santolla is only 48 years old. Our sincerest and deepest condolences to his family.
