My deepest sympathies and heartfelt prayers to the entire Lopez Family. Ray was the consummate friend. His smile could light up a room, his laugh - infectious, his strength and courage - inspirational, and the way he loved his Family was pure, infinite and unconditional. Duke, you will be missed immensely! Your legacy will live on forever in the hearts and minds of your family and friends forever.

Ray will be greatly missed, he was a very intelligent and respected co-worker. I know he loved his family and his sport teams. We definitely had differences on the sports, but for Ray I'll say Go Irish!

Ray will be greatly missed at Windstream as well as by his family. Ray loved his family very much as every time we talked at work the conversation worked its way to catching up on how our families were. I pray for God to grant the Lopez family comfort, peace, guidance, healing, and blessings abound.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I am truly sorry for your loss. I can’t even imagine what you and your family have gone through the last few years, and especially now, words cannot express my sorrow. Ray was an inspiration to me, and countless others with his strength of character and unwavering faith. Their are less than a handful of men that I truly respect, admire, and want to emulate, Ray was one of those men. If their is anything my family (myself and my fiancée) can do for you, or your family please do not hesitate to reach out. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

Ray has now received the crown of life that God has promised to those who love HIM. Rest in peace my dear cousin. I pray that God will provide everyone who is mourning Ray's passing with whatever soothes their spirit and comforts their soul, especially Ray's parents (Uncle Peter and Aunt Kathleen), Ray's wife (Tammy), Ray's children (Samantha, Matthew and Joseph), Ray's siblings (Pete, Mary, George). I carry you in my heart!!

Will be surely missed, awesome legacy!

We are so sorry for your loss. Ray was my mentor in coaching our soccer players. He showed me how to expect and to draw out the very best our kids had to offer on and off the field. Countless hours he would spend planning the practice sessions and the games. No one worked harder than Ray at helping the kids be the very best they could be. We often shared not only our game experiences but also our roles of being a father and a husband. I will miss his game face so serious and demanding as the kids huddled around him, followed by his wonderful smile after they took the field.

There are no words that can fully express how I feel right now. My sweet nephew Ray is now in Heaven. I count it a blessing to have shared wonderful and encouraging conversation with Ray to love him and be loved by him.We never hung up the phone without saying we loved each other. He was and I believe still is a sweet, loving soul who always had a good word and love for everyone. As he fought the fight of cancer his Faith in God was evident to me as was his love for entire family. The Lopez family will not be the same as a bright light has left us. Continued prayers for his wife Tammy, his children, my brother Peter, sister-in-law Kathleen, his brothers, and sister. My love for Ray will never end.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Ray was a co-worker, a mentor, and a friend. His laughs always welcome, and he gave it freely - I'll miss his sense of humor, and his friendship. Ray helped me become the member of the Advanced Services team thru his supervision, advice, and insistent goal of perfection. But I think what I will miss the most is the deep conversations we were able to share about life. Go Irish.

Tammy, Samantha, Matthew, and Joseph, When I first came to work in Greenville Ray reached out and took me under his wing. He showed me around our building, our city, and showed me the way around what we did at Windstream. Ray helped me grow professionally and was a great friend at a time when I didn't know very many people in Greenville!! I will forever be grateful for the time I got to spend with Ray and for what he taught personally as well as professionally!!! I am so very sorry for your loss!!! You all will be in my prayers!!! I take comfort in knowing that I will one day get to see Ray again!!! May the Lord Bless and comfort you all during this time!!!!!!
