Ray was an amazing guy. I worked with him at MassMutual and he always had a positive attitude, always willing to lend a hand, and was a great mentor to others. He will be missed.

Ray was a very kind and decent man. A good friend and a very generous co-worker. I will miss him dearly. It is very sad that he couldn't have enjoyed more time off after retirement.

My condolences to his wife and family.
