Ray was a great man and will be remembered by all who knew him.
I remember him from the late 60's when I worked at SWRI and of the many great things he did for ham radio. He will be missed by Ham Operators. A candle was lite for him in church. Our love and prayers go out to his family.

Jeannine, Diane and the entire Wangler family--We were so sad to hear about Ray.
He was so devoted to all of you. He created an exotic air around your house with all the unusual iguanas and birds. And I'll never forget his kindness in transferring vhs tapes to cd's for me. Our deepest sympathy.

Jeannine, Margaret and all other family members...we are so sorry for your loss. It was so sudden, which I'm sure makes it all so much more difficult, but please know that God will make each coming day just a little easier. Ray will always be missed and loved, and I truly believe that God will help each of you along the way. He was truly a blessed man to have so many loving children and a devoted wife of so many years. You will all be in our prayers and may God bless each of you and give you strength and peace in the coming days.
