Raymond Heenie, Jr. was the beloved 13-year-old son of Marisol and the late Raymond Heenie and the little brother to his older sister, Lauren.

In March of 2021, Ray suddenly passed away at his home due to SUDEP:  Sudden Unexplained Death in Epilepsy.  Raymond was an 8th grade student at the Amity Middle School where he played hockey for Yale and lacrosse for Amity Youth Lacrosse.

All who knew Ray remember him as a kind friend and fantastic teammate.  In honor of Ray, Amity Youth Lacrosse introduced the annual ‘Play for Ray’ award.  The recipient of this award is chosen each year by the 8th grade coaches.  It is a player who embodies the team, someone who always has a positive attitude, has the ability to lift the team, and someone who has shown utmost sportsmanship throughout the season.

In honor of this special recognition, a $250 donation is made to the Epilepsy Foundation of Connecticut in the winner’s name by Amity Youth Lacrosse.
