R.I.P. ray4whu

Postby Kensington on Mon Jan 18, 2010 7:17 pm

This afternoon, I received a sad phone call from Lynn, daughter of a regular poster on here, ray4whu, to say he very sadly passed away from cancer last week.

I got to know Ray through kumb.com just over a year ago and exchanged phone numbers. He was so passionate about West Ham United and had a very large collection of Hammers programmes and helped me out when I was looking for a couple of programmes. He would not accept any payment, not even for postage. It was an absolute pleasure to have known Ray for the brief period that I did.

This site will be a sadder place for his sad passing.

Ray Bryer, rest in peace mate. True Hammer.

Love to Lynn and all the family from Gregg and Cameron xxx.


Lynn gave me permission to use his full name.

Very sad to think how many true Hammers fans have departed in the short time I've been here.

R.I.P, Ray.
