I meet Ray in 1966. We were stationed at Naval Station Long Beach. We lived a few doors from each other in San Pedro. I was on a ship; he had Shore Duty.
About 1967 we separated from the Navy and worked at the Post Office in San Pedro. We had a lot of fun together in those years
I left the Post Office in 1970 and we kind of lost touch. I retired in 2001 and moved to Las Vegas. Guess who I found living in Las Vegas? My long time friend Ray. Our friendship picked up where it left off.
Ray was one of the most smiling ,kind,giving, and fun loving individuals l’ve known. Rest In Peace Ray. You earned it You surely will be missed. Your family is in my prayers.
