Ray was my cousin and he attended Lane College with my son. When I visited my son at school, I would sometimes see Ray. Always smiling with that handsome face. Truly sad, especially knowing he was 2 years younger than my son. So young and senseless violence. Rest in peace Lil cuz. Ollie.

So many memories of Ray growing up on Railton Rd. He looked out for his family and neighbors. A natural athlete, beating the odds, and accepting responsibilities. Ray will be deeply missed. My prayer is for his son to continue what Ray started.
With a heavy heart,
Ms. Pam from next door
