Just four months after selling his global professional product company, Tigi Linea Inc., Gaetano Mascolo suffered a massive heart attack at his Dallas home on Wednesday and later died on the way to the hospital. His family, including his wife Flora, his four children and his business partners/brothers — Anthony, Toni, Bruno and Andrea — are in a state of shock, as is the professional beauty industry. Mascolo, known as Guy, was 65.
“He was the best guy you could ever meet,” said a 24-year employee of the firm. “This is awful, an awful thing,” she said through tears. “Sometimes it takes someone to die to teach others how to live. Of all people, why Guy?”
