I am saddened to hear of my dear friend’s passing. Ray was instrumental in my aviation career. I have always respected his knowledge and expertise in aviation. I’m sure his guidance has saved me many times. Ray was the “Best Man” in our wedding. What a stellar Man! He will always be remembered fondly. My condolences to Terri and Rays family.
Tailwinds forever my good friend!

Ray was more than a cousin in law. He was more of an uncle. His wife, Terri is like an aunt to me. I love this family more than I can explain in words. I am praying hard for them and Ray will be missed very much. Love you all

Mary Todd Holley and family
