  4. Sharon, Lyla, Pat, Teddy and girls: I am unable to attend Ray’s Celebration of Life today so am noting my thoughts here. Ray’s life is one to be celebrated! He LIVED and LOVED LIVING every day; loved skuba diving; union activities; seeking knowledge, was a caregiver for Selma, a caring father, and an inspirational chrisian. Can we imagine what he is doing in heaven right now? No pain, just celebrating his reward with our God! I pray God holds each of you in His arms while you cry. You too are God’s children and he knows your pain. I love all of you, pray for you, and believe God will provide you strength for each challenging day. If I can help in any way, please call me. Ray we all love and miss you!

  5. Dear Sharon and Family:
    I am sorry for your loss. I worked with Ray for many years and shared many experiences with him. He always tried to see things to the end, no matter what. When I visited with him a couple of weeks ago we discussed this last battle he had to fight. We all know he is in a place without pain now. God Bless you and your family.

  6. Sharon and family, we only knew Ray a short time, but we came to know that he was a caring, gentle person.
    We enjoyed conversations of many
    subjects as we ran into him around the Towers. He will surely be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. We will have you in our prayers at this time of your great sorrow. Call on us when you need anything. Love ,Paul and Joan

  7. Dear Sharon & family,
    Just wanted you to know that Ray will be sorely missed by all of us at the JATC and Local 12 that had the pleasure to know him and work with him. He was so dedicated to helping the apprenticeship program and the union in any way he could. He was truly a special person. My sincere sympathy in your loss.
    Carol Ozzello

  8. Sharon, and family,
    I wish we had been able to get to know each other better over the years. Ray’s Dad Lyle was my first cousin. I am so grateful to our cousin Diana for having the wonderful family gathering last summer that we were able to get some very special pictures.
    Our thoughts and prayers will be with all of you, and pray as time goes on, the loss will ease some, though I know it will never leave totally.
    Our sympathies to all.

    Bonnie & Jack King
