I got to see several AHS track meets when I was 13 and came to idolize Ray, and I've thought about him many times in the subsequent 52 years. I will continue to do so as I offer my condolences to his family and friends.
my sympathy and sharing the loss of a truly admirable man.
I pray for God's love to be present at the church today for Ray Etherly. I played against him in JR High School and knew him while we both went to AHS. I wish all the best for his family and close friends at this time of saddness and lose.
I pray that God's love, mercy and comfort overtake the family. May the peace of God be with all of you.
I competed against Ray in various sports from Jr. High through high school(Sandia) but was never anywhere close to his abilities. I always admired him and closely followed his career. I still remember that blazing relay team of Robert Mendez, Paul Bryant, Hiram Carroll and Ray at anchor! We were at different high schools but Ray Etherly was always my hero. My thoughts and prayers are with the Etherly family.
