Colleagues,
DEATH OF JOHNNY GAYLE
This is a difficult day for us all. I would like to inform you of the passing of legendary, longstanding Jamaica and West Indies umpiring giant Mr. Johnny Gayle. Mr. Gayle died this morning after a short illness.

Johnny served the cricket umpiring fraternity in the West Indies for over sixty years. He served in many capacities including Honorary Secretary and President of the Jamaica Cricket Umpires’ Association, Honorary Secretary of the WICUA for approximately twenty years and WICUA representative on the WICB (CWI) Umpires Subcommittee during that time.
DEATH OF JOHNNY GAYLE
Johnny was also a regional first class umpire and attained the lofty status as a Test umpire during the 1970s and 1980s. He was a revered figure in the West Indies and was an instructor on the Laws of cricket examination assessor for most of his career.He was honoured by the WICUA as one of its regional giants at its 50th anniversary celebrations during the bi-ennial convention in Trinidad & Tobago in 2013. Johnny was also honoured by the Jamaican Government with the Order of Distinction for his contribution to cricket umpiring in the West Indies.

The entire West Indies is saddened today and we’re definitely poorer with the loss of this overarching figure of a man that had transcended the sport that we so dearly love. The bible states that ” The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh,” therefore we were prepared for this day. May his soul rest in peace and light perpetually shines on his soul.

More information on funeral arrangements will be released at a later date.

Regards,

Vivian Johnson
Secretary,
WICUA.

Johnny Gayle played a good innings but I was still sad on hearing of his passing four short of a century. I sat in the bleachers for his final test watching Patrick Patterson driving the fear of GOD in the Englishmen –

We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
