Condolences to the family. I was actually Ray's secretary at Voc Rehab in KCMO back in 1975. He & his sister Lois had just moved here. His caring spirit really showed in his job as counselor to so many that he helped to get eyeglasses, hearing aids, job training & life skills. He was a great guy to work with & we laughed a lot. Rest in peace my friend.

I'm saddened to hear of Ray's passing. He was such a kind man. I was the Exec. Dir.. of a benevolence organization here in Rolla for 11 yrs. Ray would bring people in who needed help. He always admired a painting I had in my office, so he came in one day just before I retired and ask him to have a seat. When I walked out of my office I had the painting and I just said find a place in you living room to hang this and he started to cry. I gave him to painting on the old black grandfather playing the banjo with the small boy paying close attention. Ray was truly a great friend and I pray someone in the family has given the painting a place of honor. We always exchanged hugs when we ran into each other no matter where we we. He spoke of family often to me. May God bless each of you and again I'm so sorry for your loss.

He tried to teach me how to Improve my putting but I wasn't a very good student. Always enjoyed visiting with him at the Miner Golf course and when I would see him around town.

I live down the hall from where Ray's apartment was and he and I would often talk in the hall. He was a good friend to many, including me. I was saddened by his passing but am sure he is enjoying Heaven. We talked about our faith. He was a good man. He was one to keep to himself but he always had a big smile for me. I appreciate the fact that I got to know him . I am so sorry for your loss.
