    I am very saddened to hear this news I have worked with Ray and Jay over the years and received some wonderful barrels and ribs created by Ray he was an innovator. Ray along with Al Timney Stan Baker and Herb Orre we have lost a group of long time trapshooter innovators that I admired and serviced us so well.
    God speed Ray.

    I have had some excellent dealings with Jay, so evidently the tradition has been passed on.He was very helpful and did a good job. Seem like good people.

    My heartfelt sympathy goes out to Donna and the rest of family and many friends.
    I always enjoyed talking with Ray. We vended side by side in San Antonio for many years and he would always have a cadberry egg in his pocket for me when he
    arrived. (It was at Easter time) Donna, one of the sweetest ladies I know,
    keep your chin up and the coffee on. My late partner, Craig and I always
    enjoyed our time spent with Ray and you. I will miss him and God bless all
    of you.

    Ray was a gentleman and we shared many a story, I even got him a deal on some Model 12 wood from Wenigs at Missouri a few years ago. He always talked about breaking ROCKS, well Ray keep breaking those rocks, God Bless Donna and Jay on your loss, my thoughts are with you. Just talked to Mike a few weeks ago and asked how Ray was doing. My deepest thoughts and sympathy to Donna Jay and Mike.
