“It’s with a heavy heart that I post the passing of friend and Dodger legend and great humanitarian Jay Johnstone.
Here is the families post from earlier today, 9/29/2020.
I am sad to share that my father, Jay Johnstone, passed away on Saturday evening. He was an amazing man and a friend to everyone he met. He loved his teammates and always lit up when he told stories from his playing days. The pranks were his favorite and he pulled plenty of them at home, too! He cherished the friendships he made over the years with each of you and he will watch over all of us forever.
Dodger Stadium lost power at Saturday night’s game within only a couple minutes of his passing and I know in some strange way this must have been his final prank and curtain call. We love you, Jay!”
