BUFFALO, N.Y. (WHEC) -- It has been three months since the Buffalo Bills had to say goodbye to their ultimate superfan. 

Ezra Castro, known as Pancho Billa, fought a long battle with pancreatic cancer.  He passed away in May at 39 years old.

This will be the first season without him, and his family wants to celebrate his life with the Bills Mafia. 

The memorial and celebration of life will be held on Sept. 21, the day before the home opener against the Cincinnati Bengals.

It will be held from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at 4170 Abbott Road (Hammer's Lot) in Orchard Park. 

There will be a $20 donation fee for all cars tailgating. Non-tailgating cars and walk-ups are free. 

All donations will directly benefit the Castro family.
