In Memory of Ray Jones
From Roy Bergerman: President of Little League Baseball Canada:
It is with sadness I report the loss of a long time Little Leaguer and friend who passed away after a brief illness on July 21.
Ray Jones played his youth baseball with Whalley Little League (BC), and maintained his connection to the sport as a coach and manager over many years. Most recently Ray was the manager of the Whalley Big League team which he led to numerous Canadian Championship tournaments and several World Series tournaments in Easley, South Carolina over the past 15 years.
Ray was also well known in Taylor, Michigan, where earlier in his career he brought Whalley teams to represent Canada at the Junior World Series. Ray was all set for another run this year with the Big League boys when he became ill and had to miss the All-star season.
Our thoughts are with Ray’s family and Whalley Little League. He was “one of a kind” in many ways, whose passion for Little League exemplifies the dedicated volunteers at Whalley Little League.
Condolences to the family from Langley Baseball
