So sorry to hear of Ray’s passing. He always had a smile on his face. Ray made the students feel special by learning all their names and recognizing their families, and he really cared about his staff. I enjoyed the years I worked in his building. He will be remembered fondly by many.

Ray was so much fun to teach for. He was always thoughtful to me and my students. Many good memories of our courtyard garden and the plays we produced.
