Kevin & Janet and family, Joan and family: We are deeply saddened to hear Ray had passed away. There are a lot of great memories from the past, baseball, hockey, but what I remember most is a soft spoken gentle man with a very dry sense of humour and a great deal of patience to put up with some of our antics.
