We are honored to have been asked to recognize the passing of a beloved member of the close-knit New Mexico Film family.
In this great industry of passion, pride and inspiration, brothers and sisters in film are sharing sad goodbyes and fond memories of a great spirit among them who has departed to the other side.
Today New Mexico and this world say, rest in peace to a true comrade and friend to all, Frank Tapia.
Frank Tapia passed peacefully and painlessly at 8:30 last night. He was surrounded by his family, union brothers and friends. Words cannot describe my appreciation for the huge response by this Local. Literally minutes after my email his union family started to show up and by 6:30 there was a line waiting to say goodbye, the dirt of Lone Ranger mixing with the sawdust from Breaking Bad. I know that Frank and his family appreciated it and I believe it let him go in peace. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all.
