Jane,Trudy and I just came upon the Notice ,and are deeply taken by your loss and your family. Ray and I worked together for many Sault community endeavours,as well as having a collegial relationship. He was a tremendous man to engage with ,because he could always find alternatives when all else seemed to fail. All your family can be consoled that Ray was loved and esteemed by all his associates.
God Bless, Kevin and Trudy Donovan.

Jane and family
Sorry for your loss. You have to be consoled by the fact that he was so widely loved. In all the years that I knew him I never heard anyone say anything but nice things about him. Willa LeClair

Ray and I were in the same class,9F at SCI. I only saw him once in the last 50 years but I'm glad that he touched my life. He had class & character. I wish our families could have spent some time together. Our sincere sympathies to Jane and Family.
