    On behalf of White Flyer Targets, our condolences to the Bruce Family on Ray's untimely passing. Although we received a call at headquarters confirming his passing, we would appreciate it very much if someone would contact us with the details of the funeral etc. - we have been unable to get any of the details.

    Ray was a great part of White Flyer as a distributor for us in Canada. His work and efforts were responsible for many clubs throughout Canada switching to White Flyer. I will cherish my memory of having dinner with Ray during the SHOT Show in Orlando, Florida this past January - he was looking forward to getting to shoot a lot in 2009.

    Again, Ray was not only a friend, but a valued business associate who did much to support White Flyer. We will all miss him and again our condolences to the rest of the Bruce Family.

    I spoke with Lew Hummason. Lew told me that Ray's daughter had been in touch with him. Apparently Ray was responding well after his first heart attack and then suffered another massive heart attack on Saturday and passed away at approximately 2:00 pm. The family are apparently planning a gathering at the Hamilton Gun Club on Sunday May 24th. Lew is not aware of any funeral details at this time. Bill Malcolm
