Neighborhood buddies

I grew up with Ray in Blue Bell. We played sports, fished, and hunted together. I was in the Navy at the time of his death in 1968 and I was shocked to learn of his death. He was a great guy and has been missed sine then.

Classy and Sensitive Football Star

Ray was one of my first crushes in high school. I was at a freshman at a dance, and was flirting outrageously with him, and he danced with me. Ray was one of our high school football stars, and he taught me a valuable lesson. See, Ray at the time was seeing a very lovely, classy girl from his own class but he was sensitive enough to realize I was smitten, and had to be let down easily. He never took advantage of me, but quietly walked me home and explained that he was with someone else. He was so kind, and so supportive, and so understanding that I felt like a million bucks - and I was being let down! I don't know if he and his girl ever got together or married before he left, but his generosity of spirit will always be an inspiration to me.
