Ray is remembered by his family as being a very loving, kind and gentle man who at times could be very outspoken.

You never said "I'm leaving, you never said "good-bye". You were gone before we knew it, and only God knows why. A million times we needed you, a million times we cried. If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died. In life we loved you dearly, in death we love you still. In our hearts we hold a place, that only YOU can fill. Always Missing You. Your family.
