I got to know Ray in the '60's when we met at school in Ft. Devens. We became fast friends and professional ASA'ers over the years. His advice was always a great help to me. Upon his retirement, he joined the Army Security Agency Alumni Association, National Capitol Region through which we met socially and greatly enjoyed many email exchanges over our remaining years. I want to express condolences to Ray's family at their loss. He will be missed by many of his remaining ASA friends. His obituary has been included in the: www.asaaancr.org Taps roster. May he rest in peace.
