Tejano legend Emilio Navaira has passed away due to a massive heart attack, according to reports. He was 53.
A neighbor who lives across the street from Navaira in New Braunfels said he spoke with Navaira’s wife shortly after she found him lying unresponsive on the floor in their home, according to News4SanAntonio.com.
“He moved across the street from me about a year ago and just recently started working on his health,” said the neighbor, who did not wish to reveal his name. “Every day he rode his bike trying to get back into shape. He was such a nice guy, and neighbor, too.”
The news of the singer’s passing has spread throughout social media with Tejano artists and fans sharing the news along with photos and memories of the Tejano music icon.
This is still a developing story and Tejano Nation will have more details as they become available.
Tejano Nation would like to send our deepest condolences to the Navaira family.
