Not sure what to say?

To Kit & Family, I am so sorry to hear about Ray's passing. I worked with Ray at Graco for many years. He loved you all very much. Ray was a man with a great heart and great advice. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Wendy

Kit and family,
Prayers are with you on your loss....I was a football player with the N.E. Boosters in the early 70's, a team that only had 12 players. We were tough NE kids but were no match for our coaches, Ray, Steve, and Bill. Ray's favorite lines for us: "You TOUCH it, you CATCH it" usually followed by "TAKE A LAP".

Jaroscak Family,I am so sorry to hear of Ray's passing. I worked with Ray a number of years at Graco and also he poured me a few beverages at the 1029 Bar. He was such a nice guy, will miss that smile. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

To Family.....It was fun coaching with and against him in coon rapids. We enjoyed many fun times and beers together.

To all of Ray's family:

I had the good fortune to know Ray for nearly 30 years - and to coach against him for 15 of those years. A special man with a heart of gold. It is impossible to quantify the impact he had on the hundreds (thousands) of kids he coached and the impact he had on his community.

I had the privilege to be coached by Ray on the Knights. He was a tough guy, but fair man that demanded things be done right all the time. And he didn't give out many compliments on the football field, but when he gave you a pat on the helmet you know that was his way of saying "that a boy."

Paul and family-
My sympathy and thoughts are with you and your family because of your loss.

Paul & family, I am sad to here of Ray's passing. When I started at Graco many-many years ago it was fun to play softball with Ray and get to know him outside of work. Ray will be missed!

Kit & Family- So sorry for you loss. Ray was quite the character. He always had a funny line or quote to shoot at you! I will miss his laugh and humor. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this sad time.
