Lifelong Bills fan Ezra Castro, affectionately known as Pancho Billa, fought a long battle with pancreatic cancer, which eventually metastasized throughout his liver, lungs, spine and lymph nodes. He died in May at age 39.
Thousands of Bills fans celebrated the man behind the mask this weekend starting with a memorial tailgate on Saturday.
The event took place in Hammer’s Lot at 4170 Abbott Road with a tent, prayers, memories and laughter.
“I love you. I know that Ezra has always loved you,” said Castro’s fiancée, Veronica. “And I thank you with all of my heart. The children will remain Bills fans… Forever.”
