    Ray was my Industrial Arts teacher starting in seventh grade. I learned alot from his teaching. Throughout life when I’d see him he always expressed interest in whatever project I happened to be working on. We had some wonderful conversations. I think of him at times when I am working with my hands. He was truly a mentor to me. May he rest in peace.
