Les and I send our deepest sympathies to you at this time. We moved into our home in the mid 90’s and Ray was a wonderful “handyman” to us. In fact, we still have all of the towel racks he hung for us up that we still use daily! He was a always fun to talk to and funny. Rest In Peace, Ray. You will be missed.
