Ray was not only my Brother but my Best Friend too. I learned a lot from him growing up together, we shared so many memories. In Childhood and Adulthood we always were close all through the years. I live in Yuma, Arizona now and last November and in the end of December Ray came out to visit me. We had a lot of laughs and he had a really good time. I am going to miss him but the memories we shared will last forever. Rest In Peace my Brother and I love you. Your Brother Bob 🙏❤️🙏

I spent several years with Ray in New England traveling for our job. Ray was always the life of the party( not a party) but everyone loved Ray. Great personality, great guy! You will be missed my brother, lots of memories. They will all love you as well in the next chapter! Ride on Ray.

Buying your first adult car is a big deal. Someone must have said my name in your Dads office while I was in Honda making my first big purchase. He came out of his office and introduced him self. (I was really surprised he knew who I was) He asked me if I understood everything, I said I did. Knowing that probably was not true he stayed in the room interjecting every so often while I was working with a salesman and then personally did all the paperwork with me himself. I was really relieved as I truly had no idea what I was doing. Whether it was because he knew we went to school together or merely because I was doing it on my own or both, I was extremely grateful. I drove that car for more then 13 years. I know it was probably such a small thing to him but it was a big deal to me. What an amazing Dad to remember and care about kids you went to school with. I’m so very sorry for your loss Joe!

I am truly sorry to hear of his passing and want to extend my condolences to his family. My prayers to all.
