Little League® International mourns the passing of Jim Tremblay, a longtime District 5 Administrator for Little League Canada. He was 71.
A Little League volunteer in the Windsor province for more than 40 years, Mr. Tremblay joined Windsor Central Little League (WCLL) in 1968 as a coach and umpire. Following several years of officiating games, Mr. Tremblay was selected to umpire in the Big League Softball World Series played in Kalamazoo, Mich.
Throughout the 1980s, Mr. Tremblay held various positions on the WCLL Board of Directors and was District 5 Assistant District Administrator for seven years (1980-to-87). He was elected as Little League Canada District 5 Administrator Umpire-In-Chief in 1988 and held that position until 1992.
Serving two separate terms as District Administrator, Mr. Tremblay was first elected as D.A. in 1994, serving until 2000, then he was elected again in 2002, serving until 2008. Following his time as D.A., Mr. Tremblay was elected President of Windsor South Little League and was league president until his passing. He and his family annually attended the Little League Baseball® World Series in Williamsport, Pa., for nearly 40 years.
Mr. Tremblay is survived by his wife, Candy; his daughter, Melissa; sisters, Gail, Judy, and Holly; and granddaughters, Rian, Ricki, and Rylie.
