Farewell to my Islanders teammate, Romaldo “Romy” Badillo

BELIZE CITY, Thurs. May 7, 2015–We received the heartbreaking news late this morning of the passing of Romaldo “Romy” Badillo, a Belizean gem, football fan nonpareil, and my former teammate on the Islanders football team of Caye Caulker, way back in the early 1970’s (1974-75 season). Romy, a retired Fisheries Officer and then tour guide/boat captain, was seriously injured in a boating accident a few weeks ago and was undergoing treatment for severe burns in a hospital in Guatemala. Our sincere condolences to his wife, Anna; his brother, Amado, another past football teammate; and his other family members, relatives and friends. R.I.P. brother Romaldo “Romy” Badillo.
