    Angels P.A. announcer David Courtney dies

    David Courtney, the Angels’ longtime public address announcer, died today, the team said. He announced Angels games since 1994. Courtney also announced Kings games since 1989. He was in his third season announcing Clippers games. He was 54.

    Courtney holds the distinction of being the announcer for the 2002 NHL All-Star Game at Staples Center and the 2010 MLB All-Star Game at Angel Stadium.

    Courtney lived in Mission Viejo with his wife, Janet.

    The Angels released a statement about Courtney: “The Angels family is deeply saddened to hear of David’s passing. He was a gentle soul, a consummate professional and an unforgettable voice tied to several professional Southern California sports teams. Over the past 18 years, his love, dedication and passion for the Angels was evident every time his voice rang through the ballpark. Our thoughts and prayers go out to David’s family at this difficult time.”

    David Courtney passes away

    I wanted to pass this along to my Halo friends. I have some friends who I used to work in radio with that said he was just the nicest guy you would ever want to meet, and his passing came out of nowhere to everyone.

    Gods speed

    Yes. I think he also did sports updates on radio stations.

    Sooo sad.. Vladdy, he was the man that announced the game at Angels Stadium. Like the starting lineup, the defense, the next batter, etc.

    He's the voice of Angel Stadium as far as I'm concerned.


    R.I.P

    He was the voice of my childhood at Kings games. He was the Gretzky era. I was pleasently suprised when he came over (or I just started to attend & found him) at Angels games.

    I assume it was a heartattack as he was a very large man?
