Ray BernabeiFrom John Van de Vaarst and Mario Donnangelo:

It is with great sadness that we must inform you that Dr. Ray Bernabei passed away on Friday, September 5, 2008 from complications that resulted from his illness. We will inform you as soon as the family notifies us of the arrangements for the funeral. Let us continue to keep them in our prayers.

Dr. Bernabei has been NISOA’s only Executive Director, serving in that role since 1975 and for most of us, the face of NISOA. He will be missed.

    I knew Ray, not through the soccer association, but through his companionship with my mother, Vickey Keith. Ray was a wonderful and loving family man. He spent holidays with our family when he was not with his children and their families up north.
    I will always remember him holding my grand daughter, Nicolette, and how her eyes would light up when he held her.

    Ray will live on in our hearts and will be greatly missed.
