Ray lost his battle with cancer on September 11, 2015.
Ray was a great guy and well-liked by all of his friends. I had a chance to visit with Ray and his wife, Mimi, several times over the past few years. They were gracious hosts at their home, and always had a smile for their guests. Mary Lou and I will miss Ray very much. Tom Rich
Adding to the previous comment by Tom Rich, Ray was a very close friend during our college years and an outstanding part of several reunions we had in recent years. He had a great career in the steel industry and was a dedicated husband, father and grandfather. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

Ray was one of the nicest guys that I ever met. I fished , hunted , and hot-rodded with him. He never hesitated riding shotgun with me when I had a street-race. He has left me with good memories too many to relate here..
