Ray would stop and talk to me when he went on his walks. He would keep me updated on his health concerns and progress in those areas. After my wife Janie passed, he took such an interest in my outdoor cat(Miss Kitty) and would bring her special food every day. He truly loved her. I miss Ray a lot. Larry Alquist

Ray was the glue that held this neighborhood together. Bringing homemade ice cream to all of us in the dead of winter, stopping by for a chat on one of his 4 daily walks or sharing his tomatoes so I could also enjoy his most talked about BLT sandwich. We might just rename it the R A Y ! Rest In Peace Ray. May his memory be eternal.
