Birdie was an amazing spirit, who always knew how to make us laugh. I worked with Birdie in Towing at AMARC, and he always made you feel welcome and made everyday enjoyable. He was a free spirit and a pleasure to know. RIP my dear friend, I hope to joke with you once again. May god bless your family, I’ll miss you.

To the family and friends of Ray as we here at Davis Monthan would call him, He was a warm and caring person, never a mean word, always a big smile. I worked at the base exchange, and retired and Ray and the other retired guys invited me to join the hang out group, for a good talk, a snack or just laugh in the food court I didn't get there often , but when I saw Ray it was with a big hug, and smile. I am so sorry for your loss, I just found out yesterday I was so shocked and sad. He will be missed, thank you for sharing him with us, RIP Ray... 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

I know you are in heaven looking down on those who love you. This is not goodbye it is see you another day.

Thank you for being in my life and Maredith’s. Thank you for all you did to help us. Sorry we never got that pizza and beer.

I know you are in glory with the Lord for you lived your life loving Him and loving others. I will always remember watching you and Connie celebrating with us on the day Maredith was married.

Rest In Peace, true and faithful friend.
