I AM SO SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT RAY. I WORKED WITH HIM AT 3 DIFFERENT PLACES, AND WE ALWAYS HAD A LOT OF LAUGHS. HE WAS JUST A JOKESTER. I LOVED HIM, AND I CHUCKLE AT MY MEMORIES OF HIM.

I am so sorry to hear of Ray's passing! I always had a great time at the Gamecock football games we attended. He was a lot of fun and a great person. I will miss him dearly!

I was so sorry to hear about Ray and his daddy. Ray and I were close friends a couple decades ago, but lost touch. The way he brought laughter to those around him will always, always be remembered. Please know the memories I have of Ray will be with me forever. Praying for healing for his family.
