Rest in peace Coach! My sympathy and prayers are extended to his family. I have very fond memories of Coach's math classes and his storytelling abilities. I still love math and that is because of how well Coach taught his classes and how it made it easy to understand but also interesting!

Although I was never a student of Coach Raphael, I never cease to be amazed at the number of people that he left such a positive influence on. I admire and have tremendous respect for this gracious man. He was my friend. Well, done, Coach, well done!

Coach Raphael was a passionate and influential man ... as a coach, as a teacher, and as a person who cared for others. I know that he was a major influence on my decision to go into engineering. I wanted to see how all that math, that he loved, worked in the real world; and not just on paper. And his influence went long beyond his coaching and teaching, it was his love for his fellow man that most will remember long after the memory of the games have faded, long after all of the equations have been solved.

My prayers go out to the Raphael family.

Coach, you will be missed.
