CIF-SS Assistant Commissioner Overseeing Soccer Passes Away
CIF-SS Assistant Commissioner Scott Raftery lost his battle with cancer and passed away early this morning. Scott was a loving father and committed friend to many but he was also a strong supporter of high school soccer. His presence and his positive influence will be missed by his colleagues, administrators, soccer officials, coaches and student-athletes.
This was the message posted on his Caring Bridge page by his sons:
A day many will never forget
Written 11 hours ago
"Today is a day that none of us wanted to come but one we will never forget. This morning at 4:23am on February 23, 2013 our father, Scott Raftery went to be with Jesus. Our family is so gratful for the love and support you have shown us. Your prayers are much appreciated and thank you for all you have done. More information to come once the family plans his celebration of life ceremony that will be held in Temecula, Ca. God has him now and he is looking down on us. God's comfort is more than enough and He will grieve with us for the loss of our dad."
God with you all. Shane and Justin
Isaiah 40:31 says, "but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."
