Dr. Ralph Wade

 We lost a dedicated member of our umpiring family. Our dear friend and mentor Dr. Ralph Wade died on 12/1/2013 after complications and a short stay at the Lahey Clinic in Burlington, MA.

Dr. Ralph Wade was a Board Certified Emergency Room physician in three hospitals in the Merrimack Valley.  He saved many, many lives.

He was an active umpire of the MVUA, GLBUA, and NHBUA. He had done as many as 150 games a year and loved doing every one. He was a great umpire and mentored so many in his knowledge of rules and his excellent mechanics.

Professor Ralph Wade was employed by Northern Essex Community College in Haverhill/Lawrence where he ran and taught the EMS program.

He touched the lives of so many people as a doctor, an umpire and a teacher.

Ralph will be missed by so many.  After all, he touched so many lives in his life, and no-one can ever recall Ralphie saying an unkind word about anyone.  He was 60 years old.
