Former Port of Spain mayor and past president of the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) Raymond Tim Kee has passed away.

The People's National Movement (PNM) confirmed to Loop News that he died on Saturday night.

It's unclear at this time how the former mayor passed.

Current Mayor Joel Martinez in an immediate response to Loop News said he was shocked by the news of his predecessor's passing as he was not aware that Tim Kee suffered any illness. 

The Trinidad and Tobago Super League has also extended its condolences to Tim Kee's family. 

The Futsal Association of Trinidad and Tobago paid tribute to the former TTFA president, noting that it was under his tenure that FATT was constitutionally ratified as a full-body member of the TTFA.
