Ray Angle RIP

Ray Angle died peacefully early today with his family around him.

Funeral details will follow in due course.

Ray stepped away from chess a few years ago. He was in his mid eighties. He had been a stalwart member of the Pentyrch Chess Club since 1989. He was also for a long time the club’s webmaster, having set up the website.  Ray’s father-in-law, Arthur Griffiths, was the first Welsh Chess Champion. (That document is publicly available on the Pentyrch Community Council website – pentyrch.cc – under “History”, “Archive”.)

The funeral will be held on Wednesday 4 January 2023 at 1.45pm in St Catwg’s Church, Pentyrch followed by cremation at 3.00pm at Thornhill.
