Vale Ray Gimi

Posted on

We were shocked to hear the tragic news that Ray Gimi passed away suddenly last weekend – still wearing his kit after his morning run. Running was Ray’s passion. He was well liked by all of us who do the Sunday runs. He was a gentleman and a gentle man and was selfless in looking after his elderly parents while they were at home. Funeral arrangements will be posted when known.
