I am sorry to hear of Ray’s death and to learn of Nancy’s death in 2007. I offer my condolences to the family.

Ray worked at United Twine & Paper for over 2o years. I remember him as a young man big and strong as a bull. He was always a hard worker, delivering in good weather and bad without complaint. I can’t recall any complaints from customers and I never had any problems with Ray.  I recall his passion for soft ball along with Ron Keller and would not have wanted to face him on the diamond.

If anything, I hope he leaves to his children and grandchildren a legacy of a strong work ethic and integrity that defined him at work. I hope you all find peace in the days and weeks to come.
