In his early years, Julio and his brothers played all the instruments in a band and were called Los Dominos.  They played in various venues where he was the singer of the band and known for his beautiful voice. He was a huge Elvis Presley fan and loved his music and his movies, but most of all he always wore that Elvis hairstyle and was always called Elvis by his family. Julio loved many friends, nephews and nieces, but especially his family.
