Ray Newman was a kind and gentle man with a big heart . I knew Ray for over 40 years. He was a Grandfather to my two children, Roy Spencer and Lorinda Marie. A great Grandfather to my grandchildren. We will miss you. You will be in my heart and mind always and for ever. Thank you for all the love.

ALL OUR LOVING THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS FOR HAZEL AND HER FAMILY AND FOR TERRY AND DIANNA'S FAMILY. "PAPA RAY" AS WE KNEW HIM WILL FOREVER BE REMEMBERED BY THE RZEZNIK FAMILY. JOAN AND MIKE RZEZNIK AND FAMILY

Ray was a wonderful man and will be very much missed.

Ray was an outstanding football man. He was also a great guy, enjoyed by all who knew him. He will be missed. Love Bonnie & Norm Pollom

Our prayers are with Hazel and the Newman family. Ray was always a positive influence with me since our first football days together at Bakersfield College in 1965. He was a friend and mentor and will always be remembered.

Your memories will live on forever in my heart, my dearest grandpa. We love and miss you.
