Ray was a terrific guy and a good family friend. His civic contributions were numerous. Ray was active in local government issues. He screened applicants to military academies. He was an energetic supporter of youth sports. Ray's participation in classic car events provided fun entertainment. Mr. Ray's was a great place to find out what was going on in the community and have friendly discussions about sports and politics. Thanks for everything and the fond memories, Ray.
