The following are some tributes posted on social media to honor the life and the legacy of the deceased.
I am stunned to hear about the tragic passing of Chris Traynor and his family members. My heart goes out to his surviving family members.Chris was an absolute pleasure to work with, as a volunteer coach, and a person. He was well-liked by coaches, players, parents, and respected as a coach by Baseball Oshawa. He was the kind of guy that taught more than baseball, and it showed.I will remember my last discussion with Chris fondly, having had the pleasure of selecting him and letting him know he had won a Coach of the Year Award as part of the Baseball Oshawa House League program. He was genuinely happy to hear it, and it was a nice moment. We talked about how his son had made the rep team, and I wished them well.I cannot believe it.
Rest In Peace, Chris, Brad, Adelaide, and Joey.
