Just found out what happened and I'm just heartbroken. What a wonderful, hard working, dedicated man. I've known him my entire life and I'm just shocked and upset. I wish I had known sooner so I could have been to his memorial. Keeping him and the family in my thoughts.

I can't believe Rey is gone. I just heard today - and I'm simply stunned. I'm so glad I stopped in to see him - evidently just days before his passing. He was a good hard working family man. He was a good friend who will be missed by many.

Jackie and family, El Rey and all of you are like part of our extended family. We still brag about El Reys even though we live out of town now. I (Shawne)knew Ray long be before El Reys and long before I met you and the girls when he was at Chico's. Ray was always gracious and kind to me. I know the loss is huge for you and the family. We send our prayers and love, Shawne and Bob

I was saddened when I heard of Rey's passing. My heart and my prayers go out to his family and his many friends. I first met Rey when I started working as a dishwasher at Chico's when I was 14 years old. I later worked as a cook, a server and a front house manager under his command well into my late 20s. Rey taught me a lot about cooking, the restaurant business, about friendship and about life philosophy in general. We had a ton of fun together, both inside and outside the restaurant environment. I will always cherish and remember those wonderful times, and be forever grateful for the friendship and guidance he provided to me as a mentor.

So sorry to hear about Rey. He was a fine person. My family has known him at his various restaurants here, stating with Chico's on Browns Lane and Richland. We still go to the last restaurant he had, and have fond thoughts and memories of he and Jackie.
