Ray was a dear friend, we spent many hours fishing & small game hunting in and around Lee county in our teens. He & I were members of Troop 986 & Explorer Post 986, Sanford, NC BSA. We also enjoyed squirrel hunting & archery. I’m sorry we didn’t get to spend much time together in our adult years, but many fond memories. My sincere condolences to Ray’s family.
