Linda & family: So sorry to read of Ray's passing. Haven't seen him around Chatham in some time. Have many great memories in the good old days of slow pitch with Ray coaching us ladies! He was passionate about our games & we always had lots of laughs with him & our teammates. Especially recall our Niagara Falls tournament on your anniversary I believe! So many crazy moments.

RIP Ray
