I am deeply saddened to hear the news of Ray's passing. After high school, Ray and I would bump into each other, only occasionally, at Stewart's getting coffee and such. During the high school years we had some good times at the Shop Bar, the Spillway, or reservoir aerator parties, etc. I have always had great respect and high esteem for Ray because of his skills as a heavy equipment operator, but more importantly, because he was a good man. I wish to extend my sincerest condolences and sympathy to all of the family and friends of Ray Baker. May he rest in peace.
