A Phoenix family that was kicked off a flight in February is now mourning the loss of their beloved husband and father.

Jorge Alvarado reportedly passed away, according to an update from his wife, Christina Fabian-Roman.

The terminally ill man was set to head to Disneyland in early April with his family after they were kicked off an Allegiant Air flight when his son had an allergic reaction to a dog aboard the plane .

The coming Disneyland trip was courtesy of Southwest Airlines, one of many companies who offered to take the family on vacation after the humiliating incident .

Just a couple weeks ago, the family said Alvarado's condition was worsening and he wasn't sure if he would make the trip.

The family was attempting to visit family when the February flight incident occurred.
