Hugo Belvisi

September 18, 1936 – December 20, 2016

Hugo Belvisi en Centro Region Leonesa
A year ago I found out that Hugo was renting an apartment just one block from mine. I visited him several times a week so he would do simple exercises. He was gaining strength, and I was hopeful that he’d return to the milonga.

That never happened.  His health continued to decline.  I called him for the last time in mid-December when he told me he was preparing to move into a geriatric home.

On Monday, a milonguero who checked up on Hugo regularly was at El Maipu, so I asked how he was.  I wasn’t prepared for the news that he died just before Christmas.
