Wild Mourns the Passing of the Voice of the Wild Arch Ecker

The Wenatchee Wild organization is suffering a terrible loss with the passing of our colleague and, more importantly, friend Arch Ecker.

For more than five years, Arch had been the voice of the Wild. He took his role as a broadcaster with high regard and was closing in on calling his 1500th game in his career.

General Manager Bliss litter said, “Arch loved to be part of the team. He took so much pride in his work as a broadcaster, be it his preparation or on the air. He always strived to have his A-Game.”

Head Coach Chris Clark said, “We are all devastated to hear the news about Arch. He had that special ability to make everyone around him smile with a joke or story from his past. Arch was talented at so many things, and of course, one being the voice of the Wild. He loved the game of hockey and even more Wild hockey.”

Arch also used his voice for another passion of his, music. Arch had an impressive voice and was a musician and who had recently released his first single, “I’ve got a feeling.”

“I am not sure if there was an instrument Arch could not play. You only had to watch him play in his latest band, No Promises, to see the passion he had for music”, Littler said.

Arch was happy, he loved his job, music, and the people in his life with his whole heart. Wenatchee Wild Hockey was lucky to have him in our organization. We all cherish the time we had with him and are sending thoughts and prayers to his loved ones.
