I knew Ray as a very little kid. He was Little Ray to his dad's Big Ray. His dad and my mom dated off and on for a while in the early 70's. The last time I saw Ray was probably around 1974. Considering how little we were, I have very clear memories of him. We used to play at his dad's old restaurant and boat in Benicia, California. 

I saw Ray's picture in the Chronicle's memorial section yesterday. His broad smile is the same as I remember. I came to this website and have been so moved by all the remembrances of Ray. What an incredible man it sounds like he became and what a legacy he left for all that knew him. My heartfelt condolences to his family.
