Umpires Request Games
|Chris Woodward April 16, 1949 - July 30, 2015|
Christopher Burnham Woodward
April 16, 1949 - July 30, 2015
Chris passed away unexpectedly while on a business trip in Connecticut. In his usual routine, he went for a morning run, after which he passed away from a heart attack.
Chris, umpired for NOLL/SOLL with a long history
of volunteer service. He worked 15 games this year with his last game being a Seniors game on June 30, 2015 at Front Caldecott with his son Alex. All of us in NOLL/SOLL who had the pleasure of working with him knew him to be a fine umpire with a wonderful disposition - nothing could disturb him - he made his partners better umpires just by working with them.
We share our condolences with his family and remember with fondness his dedication and spirit to helping in our mission.
