We had the opportunity to know Ray and Jan through our friend Bert. We lived in the same building downtown and we got to know Ray & Jan as neighbors, friends and the parents of our friend. I got the opportunity to go on a few bike rides with Ray and he was hard to keep up with and he was 40 years older than me! He loved his bike rides. Ray and Jan were always quick to invite us over for a drink and conversation. Over the last few years as we moved to West Seattle we lost contact but always had Ray and Jan on our minds and thought of our friends often. We will miss you Ray.

God bless Ray, a very kind, hard working, brilliant and witty gentleman. I was fortunate to know and converse with Ray during the 1980’s and 90’s. He treated me in such a way that I only can hope others get that opportunity in their loves. Prayers for Ray’s family. I was honored to know him. Tim Hansen Chicago Stock Exchange
