Not sure what to say?

Your absence in our visits together will be blatantly apparent. You always brought joy, love, hilarity and sincere passion to the table. You ALWAYS let us know how you felt and that’s exactly how we like it and why we love you. You were an original, a character with character. You lightened you any room you entered. Now, there is a hole that cannot be filled in our hearts.

I did theatre with Ray back in the day. What I remember mostly was he was always so hands on with helping out with either the set or costumes or whatever needed to be done. He always had a huge smile on his face and so pleasant to be around. I became so fond of this family, especially his daughter Noelle who I had the great pleasure of dancing with. Ray thank you for the fond memories and may you rest in eternal peace.

My husband John and I are so sad to hear of the passing of Ray Frei. Although we lost touch in the past years he was a man who left a mark on our lives. During our close to 10 years of doing shows together we spent many nights laughing, singing and just generally being close friends. I feel we shared a lot together.

I had the privilege of working with Ray on many stage productions. He was always upbeat, never complained and was a real professional. Very talented and loved the theater. Although we lost touch in later years, his spirit was always on my mind. My deepest condolences to Patrick and the entire Frei family.

To my baby,
We always said, Eyes...Eyes! We knew the eyes reconnected our souls.

To my sweetness,
You gave so much for so many!
All my love,

What a beautiful, loving tribute to Ray. His "footprint" in this world will continue to live on through family and friends who loved him.
"To live in one's heart is to never die."

Ray was a special friend. Always with a smile and advice. We had good times and will be missed. I hope his family and loved ones find peaces at this difficult time.

All My Love,
We always said to one another, You are one in a million....where did you come from? We completed each others hearts and lives. You had me from day one with those gorgeous blue eyes and that amazing smile! My heart aches every day I dont see you next to me. As we always said, Cant you get closer?
To my angel, my sweetness,
Your faithful Patrick
