Not sure what to say?

I did not know Ray well but had met him on the Executive Committee of the Penobscot County Cooperative Extension. He was a good man and will be missed. My sincere sympathy to his wife Lillian.

I first met Ray through the Brewer Band over 20 years ago. Through the intervening years I have enjoyed many musical events with Ray and gotten to know his lovely wife Lillian as well. Ray has been a good friend for many years. When we built our home in 2004 Ray was a great resource for advice, information and assistance. My husband and I have enjoyed many pleasant visits with Ray and Lillian in their beautiful Newport home, and share their love of labrador retrievers. Ray will be sorely...

Uncle Ray was one of the most loving and caring men I knew. A true gentleman. I learned so much from him in the few times I was able to visit him. I wish that I was able to get out to Maine more often. I will cherish the memories I have of him, especially from the time I spent with him and Aunt Lillian when I spent the Summer with the family when I was 12. He will be missed. May God, who is love, comfort and bless us who knew him and loved him.

There were never any ego issues with Ray: he enjoyed playing and enjoyed playing alongside other musicians regardless of their musical merits. I am sure that all of us who knew Ray considered him like part of the family and he will be missed as...

I'll always remember Uncle Ray's wry sense of humor and somewhat mischievous smile. Our condolences to Aunt Lilian, children and grandchildren.

I enjoyed Ray's friendship as a classmate at Deering and Bowdoin and will miss visiting with him at reunions.My condolences to the family.

Thank you for your service.

Ray's booming Tuba will be sadly missed, but I'm sure he will be welcomed by Sam Wyman in an even better band.
