So very sorry to hear of Ray’s passing. I posted Ray’s notice on our Redford Union High Sschool Class of 1971 FB group page and there are so many fond memories posted with many saying how nice he was and that he had such a great sense of humor. It was wonderful getting to know him again. He was a member of our group since it began (9 years). Prayers for your family.
Ray will be Forever in our hearts!

Jim told me we were going on a boat trip for two weeks with people I had never met, I figured it will be fun, a new adventure, that was 33 years ago. Never, ever did we think this is where we would meet our best friends.

Ray was like a big kid, tried skate boarding, played with is remote control boats with Aaron. That was fun until they crashed into each other. They treated our kids like their own, birthday parties, Christmas presents, football games, graduations, weddings and even when Adam went to homecoming with a girl named Julie from our marina they were there to help send them off.

Ray also had our number, we couldn’t get anything past him, his witty comebacks always put us in our place. In some cases we where known as the “Wil-Hillies”.

Both Ray and Pam where always so generous, fun, and game for anything . We have laughed together for 33 years, but we never wanted to cry with them.

Ray was a kind and very caring giant. We will be forever grateful for our friendship and cherish every moment we all spent together. Thank you Ray for making years of memories with us and being our friend.

Love,
Jim and Tina

When I was a little girl, I used to love to look through the set of photo albums at my grandparents’ house from Aunt Pam and Uncle Ray’s wedding. Partly owing to the pretty dresses and flowers, but mostly because they were an inspirational couple who so obviously loved being with one another, and that happiness leapt off the pages. Uncle Ray was joyful and fun to be around. I will miss Uncle Ray’s quick wit, easy-going nature, and love for his family. Rest in peace.

Ray was an amazing man and a wonderful neighbor. We couldn’t figure out how all kinds of different balls would end up in our yard. Found out later he was playing fetch with our dog Capone. (Until Capone got tied and wouldn’t bring it back). There would just be another ball in the yard a few days later😊. Both Ray and Pam are one of most kind hearted couples I have ever meant. He will be truly missed.
