Myself Marianne, my brother Jim and my nephew James enjoyed Ray's company very much as we visited him at Pacific Pointe in King City. We all seemed to enjoy talking about football! We will miss you, Ray, God bless :)

Ray was such a gentle, sweet soul and a man who truly loved his family. I know he will be deeply missed but there will be rejoicing in heaven.

Ray had a great sense of humor and a delightful dry wit. When I worked with him at Intel, he always had a friendly response and was a positive influence on the people around him.
