I met Ray when I worked in Braintree. We used to have a lot of fun talking about the Patriots. I actually knew him for quite a while before realizing he was the uncle of my very best friend Pam. What a small world. He was a very nice man and I miss our football talks. My sympathies to his family.

I am very sorry to hear of Ray's passing. I feel that Ray was another member of my family (Hanlon Shoes).
I was fortunate to have Ray work for me for over 20 years and Ray was always my best employee. He was also my uncle Jack's best employee for over 30 years. Our customers still ask for Ray. Ray would tell me stories about the old JP days and about my grandfather, father and uncles.
Ray and I became very close over those 20 years and he helped me get through some tough times and helped me succeed in my new Red Wing Stores.
I love you Ray and will be deeply missed

So sorry to hear of your family's loss. Ray was a great family man and was so lucky to have such a wonderful family around him. I have the fondest memories of baby sitting the children in my earlier years and Easter celebrations with the whole family back in the day. Again my deepest sympathy to all. RIP Ray.

It is with a very heavy heart that I post this , he passed away Friday evening. My Dad was a wonderful husband, father and grandfather. He so dedicated to my mom for 61 years , November was their anniversary and also the birth of 4 children - all 11 months apart. His commitment to his family and opening his home to some of us as adults was never questionable. He loved each of us and was so proud of our accomplishments and the grandchildren. He beamed with pride talking about their careers and he listened and laughed with each one of them making them always feel special. If you knew my dad he always had a smile on his face and was so handsome... I will miss his calls everyday, but feel lucky I was able to comfort him when he went into the Arms of the Angels... I will miss you everyday
