    I trained Ray when he first started at Crellin. I loved working with him. I still have the wooden house plaque he made me. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

    Thinking of you all today, sending prayers and hugs from NC. Always such a nice man; I was glad to have had opportunity to see him most recently when AJ graduated Basic Training. He was as much fun as I had remembered and so very proud of AJ. I know he will be missed but am glad you all have such memories. I wish I could be there for all of the great stories that I know wil be told over the coming days.

    I worked with Ray at NTK for over 4 years. I had a lot of respect for Ray and his abilities. I know I picked up a maintenance trick or two from him that I still use today. We shared a lot of laughs and good times at NTK. My thoughts and prayers go out to all his family and friends. He will be greatly missed but not forgotten.

    A good man was taken very quickly . He certainly will be granted some large angel wings. You are all in my thoughts. He loved his family so much. I was fortunate to have spent time in Buffalo and Niagara Falls Canada with both of them. Our door is always open Diana to you and your family. (((((Huge Hug)))). Love, “hitchhiker” Donna
