Ray was one one of my best friends through Liberty Road VFC. Funny as heck. Used to have a car, hand me down, with a vacuum gauge that I always made fun of as we used to roam the roads. Worked at Woodstock Job Corp where he always teased the students that were there. Not mean but funny. Like telling one that the animal they saw was not a deer, but a raccoon. Ray spent a lot of time with us when I was putting the addition on in Tollgate. Spent Saturday nights watching SNL, and laughing at the kid skateboarding down my sidewalk in his Hawaiian shirt, hitting the crack and flipping him off. He loved Mary no questions asked. A shame we grew apart, but I will always remember his warmth and friendship. God Speed.
