Wray was everything I could ask for in a brother. He reinforced the solid values held by our parents In him I had a second father figure. He always seemed to be holding back a laugh that would break out at the slightest provocation. Especially when he thought of me as the organist in the movie "slapshot" who gets beaned with a puck shot over the boards. I of course never found it as funny as he did. Hope to see yo again in the reunion "up yonder" BRO'.....

I was saddened to read of dear Wray's obituary notice in the Toronto Star on Saturday. Wray was a true gentleman who lovingly devoted his time way beyond the call of duty to both staff and students at Sunny View School. There wasn't anything he wouldn't do for you. He always made sure that the little mice who would creep into the Family Studies room once fall weather set in were removed by the time I arrived in the morning. We all worked as if we were one big happy family. Those were cherished and precious days.
Please know Wray Jr., Ryan, and family that I'm sharing in your grief during this sad time in your lives. Love & hugs, Pat Humphrey xxx

I worked with Wray at Sunny View School. He was an amazing man,
kept the school so clean and working well with all his colleagues.
Wray also loved the kids. He even took my class on a "field trip" to the basement of the school to show how the boilers and the filters for the swimming pool worked.....definitely not on his work orders. That's the sort of man he was. So Sorry he has gone.

I too have been saddened to learn of Wray’s passing.
As a former Head Therapist at Sunny View I had the privilege of working with Wray for many years.
I have read Victoria O’Connor’s eulogy and I wholeheartedly agree with her account of Wray’s qualities and of his contributions to the staff and to the students.
He was, indeed, a very special person.

I worked with Wray at Sunny View. He always took the time to talk to the children. He was a special man in a exceptional place! Thank you Wray for lessons taught.

I worked with Wray at Sunnyview; a special man in every way. Wray performed and was involved in many productions at Sunnyview. He was so creative and what an amazing wicked witch in ‘Snow White and the Ten Dwarfs’.
As well as building spectacular scenery! He was kind, talented and Sunnyview sparkled and shone with his care.
I want to express my deepest sympathy to your family. Xo, Shelly( X director and Drama). ❤️

I am so saddened to hear of my friend Wray's passing. I have known Wray for a very long time since he joined the staff of SunnyView School. He was so well loved there. He knew every student's name and they all knew his. There was nothing he wouldn't do for any one of them and was often asked by teachers or physiotherapists to devise something for a child in need. He always put his creative talents to work and would come up with the perfect device.
Wray was one of the best friends I ever had personally. He took a great interest in the Choir I directed and he helped out with many events and even helped me sew costumes for an upcoming event over one Christmas holiday. Wray could make anything as he was a skilled craftsman.
If you asked Wray to help you out with anything he always said yes and found time to do just that. The helpers and caretakers were the pillars of the school during the many years I taught there. I still miss them all to this day.
Wray's final few years were not his best but talking to him always brought back joyful memories.
I will miss you my friend and think fondly of you every day. I know that his sons Wray and Ryan know that they were the light of his life and that he was very proud of them. Walk in your Dad's shoes and you can't go wrong. Much love to you both.
