Emilio met Billie in Big Bear before the wedding?

We know they had taken the vows already, but the way they met before the wedding is much more interesting. 

Emilio was at the Sugar Shack Up in Big Bear when he saw her for the first time. It's true that at first sight, only he felt something for Billie

Trying to make an impression on her, Emilio first requested Billie's friend to dance with him. After dancing, he then approached Billie for the next step. 

She joined him, and the two fell in love with each other.

Father of two daughters

Reasons behind Emilio's death

Emilio is no more in this world. The man passed away after suffering from MRSA pneumonia. This disease is a staph infection that occurs in all ages. 

His family had given tribute to him by stating that he was full of laughter. His family remembers him saying that he was such a good human being, and the way he lived his life couldn't be forgotten. 

Further, they added, it is quite unfair to explain Emilio in just a few words. He was brutally honest. The man always spoke his mind. 

And he found his family more important than anyone else in this world. Lastly, he had expressed his love to each one in the family and how much he was proud of all those accomplishments. 

A huge shock to his wife

After the death of Emilio, his beloved wife, along with the family, was in great shock. The man suddenly left his body on Tuesday in Orange County, California

Among all, Cameron, their younger daughter, was very close to him. 

On behalf of her mother and older sister, Cameron appreciated all the love and support the audience had poured into them after the huge loss for the family. 

Lastly, she mentioned that his humor, laughs, and love will always be cherished and live in their hearts.

His daughter learned a lesson very soon after his death

During the Human interview game back in 2015, Cameron opened up about her father’s death and how she came to learn a lesson after his death. 

According to Cameron, when her father died, the hardest moment for her was not knowing what that meant, not knowing what it would mean to be without him. 

And above that, the most painful part was having to see her mom bidding goodbye. But Cameron learned the lesson very soon. 

She recalled the moment when she woke up the next morning. She had the moment where she was like, 

“O my God, my dad is dead, he is no more, he is gone.” 

And then she had the moment where she had a visual of her father standing next to her. When she looked over, her father was already gone. 

Then she saw a huge massive hole which was bottomless. The hole was so dark, so overwhelming. 

On the other side of the hole was a massive pile of dirt. It was so high that she couldn’t see the top of it. 

And she instinctively walked around the hole and saw herself walking around the hole, after which, rolling her sleeves, she started to climb up through the dark. 

As soon as she dug her hand into the dirt and pulled it out, she found strands of emeralds and rubies in one hand, and her other hand was a gold goblet. 

Seeing all that, she was so perplexed for the moment and soon realized, 

“Okay, where he once was, is now. 

He has left her a task, a responsibility, and that she must climb up the pile of dirt and dig out all the treasures he has left behind, all the jewels, all the lessons, all the things that are going to enrich her life.

During the same interview, she also talked about Fame, where she said she is not an actor because she wants to be famous but being famous was her job. 

When she is home with friends and family, she is not famous, and she is herself. She says Fame does not define her. 

She added that people will never be happy if they are looking for fame to define themselves and will always be searching for happiness. 

They will never find happiness in fame.

Even though he is no more, when alive, he was a well-known name. Therefore, Emilio Diaz had an estimated net worth of $5 million.
