I always enjoyed checking in with Ray. He was very kind to all. I will miss his voice. May God bless his family.
Ray was my first ever contact on Amatuer radio. He was a very good man, and I always learned something from him, and looked forward to hearing him on the radio. 73 Ray.

Ray was a great man to sit and talk to about guns and his time in the Army, we shared many stories. I'm going to miss you Ray, who's going to answer my Electronic and Ham radio question. See you later my friend. Rick,kd4dra
Ray was generous to a fault. With goods and knowledge alike, he helped more folks learn to enjoy amateur radio than anyone will ever truly know. His voice will be missed over radios near and far. Best wishes to his family. 73.
Connie I am so sorry to learn of your precious fathers passing. Praying for peace and comfort that only God can give. Love to all❤️
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
Ray was one of the kindest, most patient, and generous men I have ever met. He was an Elmer to many, and he freely gave of his time, his resources, and his good will and humor and was never too busy to help. He could seemingly get along with anybody, and if you ever stopped by his house, he was quick to invite you in for a cup of tea and fellowship. I am a better person for having known him, and his influence will live on in the lives of innumerable people. He left a powerful heritage in his son Johnny and his grandson, who have been and continue to be imitators of "Dad" and "Grandpa" and perpetuate his kind and gentle manner, his dedication, and his service. We will miss him but will not forget him: his influence continues to inspire us to serve others.
Ray was one of the first people I met when I moved here in 1992. Always kind and helpful to anyone who needed it. He will be sorely missed. My sympathy for the family, so sorry for your loss.
My Condolences to the Family. Ray was a great Man to just talk to. He always took time for you. He will be missed by many.
Ray was one of the finest gentlemen I had the pleasure to know in my ham career. He helped me learn the language of BRARS from the age of 15 years.I am now 82. Ray was my mentor. I will always treasure his memories.
Ray was one of the most giving men I've ever been around. His willingness to share all he had - especially his knowlege of electronics - was so refreshing each time I was privileged to be around him. He was instrumental in organizing and maintaining the Amateur Radio community in the Upstate. His legacy will live for years in the hearts of us who had the honor of knowing him. 73, Ray.
Ray was such a sweet, kind man- always willing to help in any capacity that he was able to help
