My wife and I, Phyllis will dearly miss Rays humor and great times eating out with him and Irene. He was a very strong man yet he was so gentle. We are so glad to have been with him on many occasions. We played football side by side for the St. AMANT Wildcats 1964 graduates. Irene may you find strength to continue your life. Missing Ray. Coral and Phyllis.
