BCBOA Remembers Felix Gonzalez

by kdr


It is with profound sadness that we mourn BCBOA member Felix Gonzalez (Felix Patriarca Gonzalez), who passed away on Monday, February 22, 2021, surrounded by his loving family.

Felix was an accomplished official at the Canada West, U-Sports, PACWEST and High School levels.  He was a member of the BCBOA since 2006 and received his NOCP level 4 in 2015 which is the highest level (National) for non-FIBA Basketball Officials in Canada.  He was assigned multiple Gold Medal games at the 3A and 4A provincials and Medal games at the CCAA Women’s and Men’s National Championships. 

Felix was loved and respected on and off the court. He will always be remembered for his warmth, his infectious laugh and his smile.  His partners always knew when they worked with him that they had a great teammate beside them.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to his wife, daughter and two sons:

Emmanuela Datayan Gonzalez

Maria Izabelle Datayan (Izzy)

Joseph Izmhael Datayan

Jerome Izaac Datayan Gonzalez 

A Go Fund Me campaign has been started for Felix’s family.
