I was saddened to hear of Ray's passing. Thoughts and prayers to his family and friends. I lived across from Ray when he first came to the neighborhood. I got to know him fairly quickly from the start. He loved sitting outside on his porch reading, smoking his pipe and working in his garage. I use to go over and sit with him and talk for hours. Ray had a wonderful sense of humor and I had some good laughs with him. He will certainly be missed in Fox Run Meadows development.
