I am a Tour Director for Friendship Tours. I have had the pleasure of traveling with Ray and Nadine on many trips. Ray and I always like to sit and chat about his accomplishments. I am really going to miss him very much. My condolences to his entire family and especially Nadine.

Ray to me- Mentor, good friend, brilliant, hard working, kind & always there to help. We spent many hours talking about life's ups and downs, had a lot of laughs and we definitely did a lot of good work for our SNETCO clients together bar none. I will miss our chats. I have no doubt Ray is hard at work in his new role reconfiguring heaven or solutioning something while watching over us all with that big grin! My deepest sympathy to the family. He often talked about many of you with a lot of love and respect over the years.

The hardest working, kindest soul I have ever had the pleasure to share time with. Ray was a unique and special person, always looking to do the right thing and help others. Ray and I spent many hours discussing work and life related matters, and solving the worlds problems! I am proud to have been a friend of his. His influence in the world will be missed. My deepest sympathy to his wife, children, grandchildren and his family. May he rest in peace!

My heartfelt condolences to the Futtner family. I had the pleasure of working with Ray for many years at SNETCO. Ray was always helpful to me and willingly shared his knowledge and expertise. He was not just a coworker, but a true friend. He will be missed by everyone who knew him.
