Elín Ortiz has died at the age of 81. The husband of the television presenter Charytín Goyco has lost his battle with Alzheimer’s Disease. Son, Shalim Ortiz confirmed the news on Twitter with a beautiful message. “I will always love you,” he wrote. “I will always remember you. You don’t suffer anymore. You are free. Your little angel Rabitín.” Shalim attached a photo of himself and his late father together.
Charytín shared an image on Instagram of herself and her husband during their wedding day. “My dear husband Elín Ortiz,” she wrote in the caption. “My life partner for many decates, the one who gave me so much love and protection has left to heaven. I am in profound sadness like my kids and family although I am sure, that he finds himself in this moment in a beautiful place next to God. Thank you to all the lovely public and my fellow artists and all of the press for giving me love and understanding … your messages are in my heart and soul. Don Elín, I will love you for eternity.”
In September 2015, Goyco openly talked about her husband’s fight with the disease. “Elín has very advanced Alzheimer for many years,” she told El Nuevo Día. “In recent four years everything has been accentuated to greater levels and I can’t abandon him for one second. The Puero Rican producer had been facing this challenge for more than a decade. “It is time that everyone knows, although I have never hidden it from anybody because everyone around me already knew,” Charytin said at the time. “The public always asks about him. This is something that I had never said in my life because it’s very serious. I want you to know that I am not hiding Don Elín, I am protecting him.”Read More
