Passing of Ray Timu

It is with sadness that our softball community is mourning the loss of one of the greats, Ray Timu. 
Known to many, and a stranger to none, Ray was a former player and coach of the PK Premier 1 Men’s team. Ray was there in 1984 when we won the Wellington Championship, Intercity, The Vic Guth Memorial Tournament, and in 1987 when PK climbed to the top of Softball in NZ (beating Cardinals to win the Lion Red Series), just to name a few special times that Ray was apart off. Ray was famously snapped climbing over Mark Sorenson to pick up the sports photo of the year while scoring the opening run of the game.
We are sending all our thoughts and aroha to Colleen, Cory, Keri, the grandkids and Ray’s extended family. 
Thank you Ray for your service, love and friendship to the Poneke Kilbirnie Softball Club, you will be greatly missed
