Loreto, Baja California Sur, Mexico, May 18, 2021 - Guests, colleagues and the entire Villa Group family will join in a celebration of life after the passing of Sixto Antonio Navarro Lugo, General Manager of Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto.
This unexpected loss has given both guests and those who had the privilege of working by his side at Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto an opportunity to reflect as we say goodbye to not only an important leader, but a longtime friend and confidant.
