SEPULTURA guitarist Andreas Kisser‘s wife, Patricia Perissinoto Kisser, passed away Sunday morning (July 3) after a battle with colon cancer. She had just turned 52 years old.
Andreas and the couple’s three children, Giulia, Yohan and Enzo, announced Patricia’s passing in a social media post yesterday, writing: “It is with deep sadness that we have to share that Patricia Perissinoto Kisser passed away this morning. She will remain in are memories forever.
“We want to thank all our friends and family for all the support and messages of love.
“We ask for privacy during this difficult time.”
The SEPULTURA guitarist went on to call his wife his “best friend” in a separate post written in Portuguese and also praised her for facing her illness “head on”, adding: “My admiration for you is eternal. I’m sure we’ll cross paths again in some dimension beyond this earth.”
Andreas and Patricia were married in 1994 after being together since 1990.
Andreas Kisser has been absent from SEPULTURA‘s European tour due to what was described at the time as a “family emergency.” Guitarist Jean Patton of PROJECT46 has been filling in for him.
