Twitter Reacts to Bills Super Fan Ezra “Pancho Billa” Castro Passing Away From Cancer (Tweets-Vids)
Sports always brings some of the nicest people together and the Bills just lost one of their best fans of all-time. Ezra Castro aka “Pancho Billa” lost his battle with cancer today, according to TMZ Sports. He was diagnosed with stage four cancer after a mass on his spine was found in 2017.
Bills fans always seen him at games for over a decade. Castro even announced Buffalo’s third round draft pick in 2018 and discussed with GM Brandon Beane the Ed Oliver pick in last month’s draft shortly before the announcement. Castro was in the hospital at the time.
Castro was known for wearing his Bills shirts along with sombreros and masks in the team’s colors. Last year, he was inducted into the Buffalo Fan Wall of Fame. Flip the pages for Twitter reactions to his death along with discussing the Ed Oliver pick with the team and Jim Kelly voicing his support for Castro.
A Bills fan through-and-through, and an inspiration to us all.
Pancho Billa, we’ll miss you. #VivaLosBills #BillsMafia pic.twitter.com/yUDafu7m4O

If a special hat could be made in honor of #panchobilla and if the proceeds could go to cancer research, I would gladly buy two. #BillsMafia
