My sincerest condolences to the McGowan Family. I had the distinct honor & pleasure to work for Ray when he was the Location Chief @ the Castleton Bus Depot. A great guy with a fantastic personality, a true professional in his field. As with all retirees, we rarely keep in touch with all our past co-workers but I'm glad to see that Ray had a very long retirement, he certainly earned it. So long my friend, until we meet again.
