    A very knowledgable Zag fan and a thoughtful poster. R.I.P.

      So there we were back in the day and Dick was the PA man at the GU games. The Zags were playing Central Washington that night and one of the main guys for Central was named Andy Aftholder. After the game ElVoce told me that it was names like that that kept him from having a beer or 2 before the game.--True story

        El Voce was one of a kind and a true Zag to the core. He will be greatly missed.

            I'm sorry to hear this, I always enjoyed reading his posts.

            Rest in peace.

                One of my favorite posters. Rest with God El Voce.

                  RIP, El Voce. I never met him, but I knew he was special person on this board.

                    R.I.P. Never personally met the man, but enjoyed his level-headed posts on this board (and its predecessor) for many years. My heart sunk seeing the title of this thread.

                      RIP Richard...

                      Just read his obituary in the newspaper...

                      My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

                      He will be missed.

                      A Zag is generous.

                      A Zag knows he is much more than the sum of his stats.

                      A Zag has a desire to be part of something that is bigger than himself.

                        This news made me think of Isaiah 57.
                        I worked with Dick and saw him at most of the games. We talked Zag basketball at every opportunity.
                        I just had to remember to avoid politics, as there was no winning an argument there.
                        Thanks for being my friend El Voce, will miss you. RIP.

                          I'm so very sad. El Voce was one of the first board posters I met in person (along with Hondo) at a pregame get together at David's Pizza (also gone)... He was so kind and I will miss running into him at games. He was also one of my favorite posters - always looked forward to his perspective - especially when times were rocky. I can only imagine how difficult this time is for the many close friends he had as well as his family. Hopefully there can be some sort of a tribute for him at a game - especially since he was truly a member of the Zag family... RIP El Voce.... You will be missed.

                            This is very sad news. While I didn't know El Voce real well, I did have the occasion to meet him a few times at games when I used 229Sinto's tickets. He was always friendly calling me Uber and asking how were the kids and my wife.

                            My condolences to his wife and family. Rest in peace, Dick.
                            If you can't handle the confusion, stay out of the Foo!
