I just saw this and regretfully found out that Ray has passed. It struck me with enormous sadness. I used to be President off the Central Arkansas Area Local #189, of the American Postal Workers Union. As such, Ray & I spent many hours together over the years handling cases between the Union & the Postal Service.
Ray & I also had something in common. We were both ham Radio operators, so we both spoke the same nerdy language.
I was very fond of Rat. He was a very smart man. He was all about fairness in the workplace. I just loved working with him.
So I was just sitting here, in retirement, and I thought about Ray. I decided to Google him & see if I could find him. I did find an address based on his ham radio license. It was a senior living apartment in Minnesota. I fully intended to send him a card, just to say hello. Then I saw his obituary on another Google site.
My sincere condolences and prayers go out to the entire family.
In that ham radio language I was talking about above, Ray is now a “silent key”. ‘73’s my friend …

W9OBF with N5DBC 73’s and QRT my friend.. See ya down the airwaves someday.
N5DBC clear.

I knew Ray from our student days at Creighton University. He was a decent and kind soul. It does not surprise me that he fought for fair labor practices during his working years. May he rest in peace.
