Ray treated all his patients with dignity and respect. I was always in awe of Ray’s calm intelligent and humerus outlook on the world around him. Thanks for guiding me through my early years in anesthesia. I always felt so proud for him and his great way with everyone who touched his life.

Ray was such a nice guy. I really enjoyed working with him. He
was also such a competent associate/anesthetist working with
us at Coliseum Park Hospital. We are sending our sincere
sympathy to you, Karen, and to all the family. May it help you all
to know that we care. Janet and Gene Kelly (Dr. Gene Kelly)
