I taught in the same junior high as Ray for 9 years in Maryland. He was fun to be around and I enjoyed his productions - most memorable for me was Jesus Christ Superstar where some faculty members were part of the chorus. I lost touch with him but was just thinking about him the other day when reminiscing with a mutual friend.

Sending condolences from all of us at the Star-Spangled Banner Flag House and Museum, Raymond was a long-time volunteer, maintaining our rose garden. He was a true friend, and I will think of him fondly and often, especially when the roses bloom.
