January 29, 1976- May 17, 2013
Felipe’s spirit now flies with the falcons. A Chilean actor, musician, poet, teacher, joker, father and loyal friend to so, so many… we miss you, Felipe!

Luckily, Felipe was a soul who taught us all to live so fully that there could be no possible regrets when it’s time to go. Felipe passed away suddenly on his way home from work from heart failure at the age of 37, leaving a wife and a 1 year old son and countless family and friends. We know Felipe has not left us for his laughter carries on and on. He was a bringer of joy, a teacher of the mysteries of life, someone who fully embraced the moment, someone who made you laugh at the absurdity of taking oneself too seriously. Felipe lived many lives in his 37 years. We all have taken some part of Felipe and made it our own, as he would hope you do.
Laugh till life looks funny. Give someone a good harmless scare. Dress like people can’t tell if you’re a fashion disaster or a fashion genius (an actual debate- we say genius). Speak in prose so people don’t know if you’re being serious or just weird. Throw your head back and laugh with your entire face so people can’t help but join in. Walk with your head proud and confident, even when you don’t feel it yet. Love animals like they are your teachers. Give huge hugs and make people really feel your love. Walk the path of your dreams without any doubt that it’s just what IS going to happen. Be weird, different, goofy, awesomely yourself. Fly ahead like a falcon and never look back.
This website is meant to hold space for all of Felipe’s awesomeness in one place, impossible but just a try. Please contribute your comments and thoughts. We love and appreciate all of our community who holds us up and helps us to celebrate this amazing Felipe Cañete. Grande Felipe!!
