My Father grew up with Woody Player and purchased appliances from him as long as I could remember. I was introduced to Ray Burgess and purchased appliances from him until Ray went on to other things. Everything in our homes came from Queen City.
Ray also owned a plane with my apartment mate, and we would double date to the beach for seafood suppers in that plane and return home later. Great times!! The girls loved it!
We will miss you, Ray...
We rejoice with the family in Ray's homecoming;
We shed tears of sorrow with you in your loss;
We lift you up in our hearts for peace and comfort;
And we hope that each day gets better and better.
