It was a an honor to have served with Ray on the Board of Directors of Camp Olivet. Ray was very instrumental in helping to develop Olivet as we know it today. When Ray spoke we all listened and took notice. The Board of Director of Olivet extend our thoughts and prayers to the family during this time. We hope this will be a time when Ray's life is celebrated by all of those he has touched during his ministry at Camp Olivet. He was a "very good man." One who loved the Lord and served Him with kindness.

To Linda and the family, my deepest sympathy. I will always remember your Dad’s goofy sense of humor. Sometimes he couldn't even finish his jokes without laughing before he was done telling them.

They will never know all the countless lives they have touched in their ministry with CEF! I know me and my family are great ful to have known such a Godly examples of kindness, love and grace. Mary and Ray are probably surrounded by a multitude of children around the throne of heaven rejoicing in God's greatness.

Ray and Mary both made such an impact through their work with CEF camp. Ray pulled me aside one summer when I was 14 and looked me square in the eye and told me that Camp Olivet was a special place and that there would always be a place there for me. Ray's confidence in who he thought I was made a significant impact on me then and now 40 years later, it's one of the first things that came to mind. I am looking forward to seeing Ray again in heaven. I'm so thankful for the hope we have in and through Christ Jesus. Linda, Jeff, and Heather - I'm very sorry for your loss. The world isn't as bright now as it was when your parents were here. I hope that your good memories and I pray that God's grace towards you will help you through this difficult time.

Ray could never recall my name all the years I knew him except for once. He then acted as if he couldn’t. Brings a smile to my face every time I think of him. What a man of God! We are blessed beyond measure to have called him friend. Peace and comfort to those left behind. Ensure you see him again one day.
