Condolences to family and friends of former VIRGINIA COMMONWEALTH UNIVERSITY men's basketball and baseball radio voice TERRY SISISKY, who died THURSDAY night after a battle with cancer at 58.
SISISKY called RAMS games from 1980 through his 2008 retirement. More recently, SISISKY, who started his career at age 14 at WHAP-A/HOPEWELL, VA, called PETERSBURG HIGH SCHOOL basketball on HOFFMAN COMMUNICATIONS Gospel WGGM-A (AMEN 820)/PETERSBURG, VA.
"TERRY was an institution at VCU for three decades. Nobody worked harder for this University than he did. He will be sorely missed," said VCU Athletic Director NORWOOD TEAGUE. "We send our sincerest thoughts and prayers to his family."
"This is a very tough loss for not only VCU, but the whole RICHMOND area," VCU Baseball Coach PAUL KEYES said. "TERRY meant so much to so many people and continually sacrificed his time and energy for this athletic department. You won't run into a better man than him."
