  His career was cut short once on 16 July 1905 when a strong north wind that set off the bay of Roses suddenly turned around the boat on which he was sailing along with fellow returning from a party. The balance of the accident was 4 or 5 drowning victims including the young bassist.


  His place in the Antiga Pep Orchestra was covered by his cousin-brother Josep Cervera and Bret who became a virtuoso of which discuss supply below.
