SAXE--Raymond D., III Passed away on Saturday, June 1, at Sound Shore Medical Center in New Rochelle, NY. He was 50 years old. Known to his friends and family as "Ray," he was born in New York City on November 14, 1962, to R. Daniel Saxe, Jr., of Winchester, VA, and JoAn Teetor Saxe, of New Castle, IN, and New Orleans, LA. He grew up in Scarsdale, NY, where he attended Scarsdale High School, graduating in 1980.

He was married to Naomi Reinitz, also of Scarsdale, NY, and lived in Rye Brook, NY. They have three daughters: Amanda, Abigail, and Rachel. Ray was a devoted husband and father, and he loved spending time with his family and friends. He loved skiing, tennis, a good mystery, and the Grateful Dead. He was an excellent drummer, and he was thrilled and proud when one of his daughters decided to take up the drums too. One of his favorite times of the year was his family's annual summer vacation at Lake George, in the Adirondacks. He has requested that his ashes be scattered there. He is survived by his ex-wife Naomi Reinitz Saxe, of Rye Brook, NY; his daughters, Amanda, Abigail, and Rachel; his sister Emily Saxe Nydam of Wellesley, MA; and his mother JoAn Teetor Marder of Tucson, AZ.
