So sorry for your loss. Ray was a huge part of my childhood from journeys to valcour island with my parents (Ralph and Kimberly). You will be missed. I’m glad I had the chance to meet you, you were a wonderful man. I will always remember you.

Raymond; you are missed. It"s like Aggie said, it felt weird to look towards the computer and not see you sitting there with that miini attack dog sitting on your lap. I am very sad for your loss Aggie and Brad, Karen and Tim and grandkids. I love you Aggie.

The endless memories will forever put a smile on my face. One of my favorites was at his retirement party. We were walking toward his garden he was talking about the (#’s of corn seeds) he ordered and I was thinking to myself who orders that much seed for a home garden. He turned looked back at his guest and said I really didn’t want a retirement party but it is really nice. He always had smile on face but that day it was just s little bit bigger. The look on his face distracted me and I never got to ask him why so much corn.
