MEMORIES & CONDOLENCES
Ray always had the closest room to the tasting room at so many of those great Blue-Gray Breweriana Shows held in Fredericksburg and in recent years in other Northern VA locations. I remember him well as a knowledgeable beer historian, promoter of American Craft Brewers and Friend to all who knew him. Ray you will never be forgotten my friend! Special thoughts are now extended to Rays family!

Just wanted to pass on condolences to Kathy & the family. Ray was a great friend to many people & certainly to those in the breweriana collecting hobby. Going to miss him! David Reed
