RIP Pancho! Thanks for all the info being posted here. Stopping in San Rafael will never be the same. Glad we got to chat and hang out with him in Feb this year. Condolences to all his friends.

Our friend of many years, Mike Humfreville is also buried at Bahía de los Angeles cemetery...



The photo was taken shortly after the burial, November 2006.

So sad...I was there the 10th and I believe it was Mexicali Jose said he would be back that weekend. We were sad to miss him, always one of our favorite spots to stop. RIP Legend.

Mood: Always Planning The Next Trip To Baja

[*] posted on 5-16-2018 at 09:16 PM


I've always wanted to stop at that cemetery and look around. Now I will every time I go through there just to see Pancho and have a beer with him.

I know schedules are impossible but when Jose let's me know what he has planned for some kind of service there I will post it up in case any of you are down that way. I will be there for sure and it can be a when you are there on going thing to stop in, add something to the memorial and maybe post up some pictures of the ever growing tribute to a Baja legend.

I guess now Carlos Slim can buy Pancho's property. A couple of years ago Pancho told me that Slim wanted to buy his property but he wouldn't sell.

We just got back from BOLA and got there a day late for the burial. Pancho was buried next to Juan's cousin Frederico's wife..it was a double header at the panteon that day. It was a sad time as several locals passed on in the last couple weeks.

DEP Pancho

Who owns the property now? Is there an Ejido there?
