Besides being devoted to his loving family, Ray’s passions were golfing and bowling, having established numerous friendships over the years while enjoying those activities.  He will be remembered for his contagious smile.

He was preceded in death by two brothers, Kenneth Dean Sine and Eugene Dale Sine.

Calling hours will take place on Friday, August 23, 2013 from 5 to 7 PM at the Vernon Funeral Home, 235 Miami St., Urbana, OH 43078.  Public graveside services will be held Saturday, August 24, 2013 at 10:00 AM in the Maskill Cemetery near Claibourne with Pastor Brian Scott officiating.  Military honors will be conducted by the Richwood Area Veterans.  The family is being assisted by Stofcheck-Ballinger Funeral Home, Richwood.

Our deepest sympathy for your loss. Wish we had known our cousin Ray better.  He sounds like a wonderful person.  He shared a fondness for some of the same sports our Dad did: bowling and golfing.  Although he will be greatly missed, it's reassuring to know he is now with our Lord and Savior, Jesus.  God bless you.  Mary Sine Pirie and Susan J. Sine, Max's daughters
