I was saddened to hear of the loss of your father. I remember Ray from our home town of Richwood growing up but more importantly working with him at Honda. He was a very funny, warm and thoughtful man. He was loving family man and I know he loved his children and grandchildren very much. He always had a funny joke to tell me and always stopped to take the time to say hello to a fellow associate. Sadly missed but warm memories of a wonderful man and also a veteran. God bless you all.
