About Ezra "Pancho Billa" Castro:
Mr. Castro, a Dallas resident who was born in El Paso, often told the story that when he was a little boy, his father told him he should choose a favorite football team. Proud of his Mexican-American heritage, he looked for teams whose colors came closest to the red, white and green Mexican flag. The two choices were the Bills and the New England Patriots. Although his father and older brother, both named Jaime, are Dallas Cowboys fans, he picked the Bills.
He developed the character of Pancho Billa, a play on the name of Francisco "Pancho" Villa, a famous Mexican revolutionary general. His intricate costume eventually included a broad sombrero with leather luchador mask, a serape poncho, a bandolier and leather arm guards, all in red, white and blue and adorned with the Bills' buffalo and his catchphrase, "Viva Los Bills."
For years, he had traveled to several Bills games around the country, including the home opener in Buffalo.
