Erv Braun – The Voice of SX
7/11/16 – It is with heavy hearts that we report the passing of Erv Braun last night around 11pm. His voice and his smile will be greatly missed. Our condolences go out to his family and closest friends.
What do you say on behalf of a man who for over 30 years was responsible for saying it all for us. The Voice of Motocross, Erv Braun, suffered a massive ischemic stroke to the left side of his brain on Monday, June 6th, leaving him for the first time ever in his career having to cancel an announcing commitment at Unadilla. He has lost the control of his right leg and right arm and, unfathomably, his ability to talk.
Erv has touched many lives having announced some of the most well-known names in the sport and endearing himself to all up-and-comers and their families; a talented musician, a loving father, and best friend for nearly 50 years to his devoted loving partner, Win.
Erv was moved from the hospital on Saturday, June 18th, to a full-time rehabilitation therapy center and his doctors are calling him one of the strongest patients they have ever had. Erv is a fighter and his will is more than intact. He is going to need daily speech and vocational rehabilitation with professionals in the field.
Erv’s insurance will not meet all the medical expenses needed for this recovery. Win and his children are all overwhelmed by the outpouring of people reaching out to them and thank you all for your prayers and support. Your support in any amount means the world to their family.
