Ray and I go a long way back. I met Mr. Ray in 1973 at the Tin Shack Bar right down from Exxon. I worked across the street at a steel fabrication shop and i was also a Boilermaker. We met there everyday after work for years. I loved his laugh and the sense of humor he had was off the chart. We delta shut down I moved out to Exxon and got to work with him off and on. It was a blast for sure. I have missed mr. Ray for years and hate to hear of your loss.
May God Bless all of you and give you all comfort.
