The 2019-2020 NBA season was a forgettable one for your Golden State Warriors, as they only won 15 games before COVID-19 arrived, and they were not invited to the “bubble” for the NBA playoffs. But there was another feel-good story that united Warriors fandom that season, the saga of Lloyd Canamore and his West Oakland “Warriors House.”

Canamore painted and thoroughly decorated the house with Warriors colors and memorabilia years ago, but a bank tried to foreclose on the house over a reverse mortgage his mother signed without his knowledge.

A crowdfunding campaign to save the home that had been in Canamore’s family for more than 50 years has raised nearly $300,000, with help from the Oakland Community Land Trust, and the campaign was shared by Steph Curry and even the Golden State Warriors social media accounts.

However, it doesn’t look like the campaign worked. Canamore moved out of the house in March, as Oaklandside reported at the time. And while the home’s auction was “postponed until August 16, 2023” according to the Land Trust, a Redfin listing for the home shows a sale of the home as “Pending,” saying “The seller has accepted an offer, and this pledge is now pending.”

To make matters more heartbreaking, KTVU is reporting that Canamore recently passed away, after passing away in late August.

Canamore is survived by his niece Victoria, and his two dogs Rambo and Baby Miracle. And Oakland Animal Services has taken in the dogs, and is trying to find them a new adoptive home.

“These two puppies, who are certainly heartbroken by the loss of their beloved human companion and their comfortable home, find the shelter quite stressful. We want to find them a new home together as soon as possible – can you help?”, said the in a Facebook post Wednesday. “We know Lloyd was a beloved part of the Warriors family, so we’re sure there’s someone out there who can make his family members part of their family.”

Oakland Animal Services’ adoption hours are Thursdays from noon-7 p.m., and Friday-Sundays from noon-3 p.m., at 1101 29th Avenue in Oakland.

A memorial for Canamore is planned for sometime in October, although details have not yet been released.
