I started working in 1984 at RCA with Raymond and learned a lot from him and enjoyed working with him very much!
He was always very proud of his children and grand children.

Hi Mary and kids,
Sorry to hear about Ray’s passing. We have great memories of him and everyone else while growing up on Blue Ridge. He was the best “supervisor” I’ve ever known.

I know you miss him dearly but keep his love and memories in your heart and he will always be with you.

God bless and take care.

It was an honor to work with Ray. He made working down in the basement at RCA repair center almost bearable, perhaps even enjoyable. He was proud to share his family highlights with us and help to pass the long hours. He would break out into drum solos on cameras he was repairing, a great way to assure they were fixed right. Thank you for sharing Ray with us!

I am so sorry to hear of Uncle Ray’s passing. I have many good memories of him. He was one of the nicest, happiest men I have known. Remember all the picnics and pool parties at your house.

Condolence from Herb Burket on February 13th, 2015 10:36 pm

Mary, We are sorry to hear of Ray’s passing. I was fortunate to work with Ray during the early 70s when we were tube testers, and then again in the Burle repair center, prior to his retirement. I have many fond memories but most of all his wit and cheerfulness and love of family and friends. He Will surely be missed. May God bless you and your family.
