Not sure what to say?

I first met Ray as a small child. His father Earl and my grandfather Ralph Eastland were first cousins and grew up together. I didn't know Ray that well but his parents often came to visit us in Bakersfield and I heard stories about his endeavors through the years. When I was about 8 y/o Ray sent me a beautiful pink and silver sari from India which I still have to this day. I remember him as a very smart, thoughtful, and kind man. I was very sorry to hear of his passing and offer my sincere...

Dear Sir,
Im from india, you started your carrier here and made a legacy for sound lovers. Im planning to built a website www.raydolby.com in your memory. Rest in peace

My thoughts are with you Dagmar. What a life and love, you shared Ray with the world. He changed the world with you by his side.
Your friend,

I was saddened to learn of Ray's passing and I send my sincere condolences to Dagmar and the Dolby family. Ray worked at Ampex with my father in law, E. M ‘Al' Lewis who thought the world of Ray. And when Ray and Dagmar took the time to adjust a travel schedule just to attend Al's 95th birthday party, it really made Al proud. Ray was a kind and thoughtful man as well as a brilliant sound engineer. He will be missed.

My husband Robert F.O'Connell helped Ray get his
first patent for noise reduction. It was a good
time for both. My condolences. Ellen E.

While working for Rosano Co. I Built Mr. Dolby's
first office, in SF. He was a wonderful person to deal with for that short time.

Although I don't know Mr. Dolby I know he was an amazing man. I'm a Realtor and had been driving through SF about a month or so ago and saw the most amazing house. Come to find out it was Mr. Dolby's. How incredible it that...Thank you for all that you've done Mr. Dolby. We were Blessed to have known you. My condolences to the family. May God Bless you all and keep you under His wings.

Death will soon be no more . I send my condolences
