Wisden Cricketers' Almanack obituary

TOLCHARD, RAYMOND CHARLES, died on July 31, 2004. He was 50, and had been suffering from motor neurone disease. Ray Tolchard made 80 appearances for Devon between 1975 and 1984, scoring a painstaking century in the challenge match against Durham in 1978, as Devon won the Minor Counties Championship for the first time. He later had two seasons on the first-class umpires' list. His brothers Roger and Jeff played for Leicestershire (Roger won four England caps), and his son Sam became a precocious bowls international. Roger Twose, the Warwickshire and New Zealand batsman, is his nephew.
