  1. Ray,
    My friend for over 50 years, you are in the hands of peace and love. We will miss your kind voice and your sneaky smile when you know you are right, which according to Dory not very often.

    Hugs my friend from your friends,
    Lee and Sharyl Pancoast

  3. CandleImageI am so sorry to see Ray’s passing. I worked with Ray at Mountain Bell/USWest. Ray was such a good person, so friendly and kind. He always talked about coming to Pueblo from Sewickley. He talked about Doris and called her “Mum”. He was always a delight. I am so sorry for your loss. Rest in Peace Ray….
