He loved boats, loved sailing, and really loved his fishing. Ray was a glorious man who helped others and gave endlessly. In his retirement he eventually worked part time in the workshop at my business, where he was best mates with my father Dean, and a friend to all our team. Ray encouraged us to always do the best job, never to accept second rate, and to value our own work and contributions. He brightened our lives at work.
Ray treated me like a son from day one, and welcomed me into his family. It is a privilege to have shared in his life. Neil.
