July 30, 2014 at 11:47 PM

INDIALANTIC, Fla. - Ray Schnitzer, the longtime former athletic director and vice-principal at Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School and a familiar figure to many SPFHS students between the 1960s and the 1990s, passed away at the age of 88 on Tuesday in Florida, where he had made his home for more than 20 years.

A friendly and colorful personality in the community, Schnitzer taught physical education and science, and coached basketball, soccer and track and field at SPFHS before becoming the school's athletic director and vice-principal in 1965. He held those administrative positions at the high school for 26 years before retiring to Melbourne, Fla. in the early 1990s.

Schnitzer is survived by his children Steven, Christine, Raymond, Beth Schnitzer, Jaimie Westley and Thomas Catalon. A scholarship fund will be established in his honor. A memorial service will be held at Beckman-Williamson Funeral Home in Cocoa Beach, Fla. at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 2.
