I was sorry to learn of Ray's passing. I remember when we worked together "back in the day" at Carlisle Tire. I always enjoyed Ray's enthusiasm and his energetic personality. My sincere condolences to his family.

Nancy, Brad, and Marilyn, I remember being a neighbor to your family and the visits between the houses. Lori and I enjoyed seeing ray and Brad at the car shows. Ray will be missed very much by all and our prayers are with you.

John and Lori Killinger

 I will always remember Ray through the friendship we made in owning the blue '57 Chevrolet Bel Air. It was something we both cherished. I was so happy for Ray when I sold it back to him, as he truly did love that car. He was able to spend his last years with it and that is a lasting memory for me.
