So very saddened to hear of Ray's passing! I have known Ray since the Gold-Coat Days at the U of M. When Ray and Kathy moved to the lakes area he found us in Pequot Lakes. He helped me with the remodel on my clinic over 10 years ago. We always loved to see his smiling face at our office! He will be missed! Love to Kathy and family!
