Ray was one of my earliest mentors. We’re worked together on many projects. His depth of knowledge and willingness to share it was infinite. He will be missed.

Our family wants thank everyone who has reached out with love, prayers and support during these difficult days. More information will be provided later about a celebration of his incredible life.

If you want and are able, send me a quick video we can play for him with a quick fun memory or message. Thanks.
