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 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). ❤️
