Obituary – Ray Funnell


It was with sadness and shock that we heard about the death of Ray Funnell yesterday on 26th April 2019 due to a heart attack. Ray (72) was a long-standing and active member of the Loose Cannons golfing group with a total of 476 games over his many years here in Malaysia.

Golf was his passion and his life and he managed the Loose Cannons group as Convenor for a number of years. Ray also participated in other golfing groups in KL including Loose Cannons, KLOGS, and WIGS and was an active participant in many of the charity golf tournaments in KL.

Ray was also an ardent KLOGGER who played with the KLOGS society for nearly 20 years. In these 20 years, he was twice KLOGGER of the year in 2007 and 2014 and also served on the KLOGS committee and attended several aways.

He will be sadly missed and remembered by his golfing friends from all of the golfing groups in Malaysia.

Condolences and our thoughts go out to Ray’s wife Gretta and the rest of his family at this time.
