I met Ray a couple of times while having lunch at Phil's Deli. As a police officer, he would come and sit down at our table and he loved to tell us great stories about working with the banks, the police departments, and the FBI. He spoke highly of his wife, his family and how his anniversary was coming up soon. I lost my father November 25, 2013, and when I saw Ray again on December 17th, he had on a Members Only jacket just like my dad liked to wear. I asked Ray what size his was, and he made me check the collar for him. It was the same size. I knew Ray was a military veteran just like my father, so I asked Ray if he would want my father's jackets and he was excited to be getting some in new colors. Then I asked if I could take his photo to share with my mother and brother about how I had figured out what to do with some of my father's stuff. He just smiled in the photo as he always did. I told everybody about him, and how I felt like fate had intervened. While I stood at the back of his car with him to write down his contact information, a young man came running over to shake Ray's hand. This young man said, I saw your Purple Heart-World War II tag Sir and I wanted to shake your hand and say "Thank You for your service." Tonight, I looked up his phone number and called it to finally get my father's jackets to him, but it has been disconnected. Then I looked online and saw that he has passed too. I am broken hearted, but glad that he has joined his wife again-he really missed her and it was the last thing we talked about.
I thought you might want this photo I added to this guest book taken December 17th, 2013. I can be reached at plisenby@cmpd.org if you want anything further.
Thank you. Pam

We will miss Mr. Lindberg and his smiling face. He always gave us peppermint patties and brightened our day.

I am so sad to have learned of the passing of cousin Ray. My sympathy and that of the Beech family goes out to Sandy and Ray and their families. Ray kept in touch with me during my parents illnesses and after their passing. He was a kind and thoughtful man and he will be missed by the family here in his hometown of McKeesport. Go share one with Ken!

I was Ray's secretary at NCNB when he first came to Charlotte. I am sorry to learn of his death. My condolences to his family.

I am a police officer that took this photo of Ray on December 17, 2014 after we had lunch at Phil's Deli. He was a great lunch buddy.
