    Met Ray going to breakfast at Saltworks II about 13 years ago. Always a kindly gentle man without a mean bone in his body. He treated my husband to a dozen flounder rigs he had tied himself. Our breakfast paths crossed frequently at Jimbo’s in recent years. Always a joy to chat with. A friendly breakfast diner where a person can get their day started surrounded by kindness… I swear that’s a little bit of heaven on earth. Thank you, Ray, for getting so many of our mornings started, right. You are a Ray of light. -Bonnie and Jason

    Ray was a dear, sweet friend. I have not seen him in years and was was sorry to hear of his passing. He never met a stranger and was a true Southern Gentleman who was always willing to help or listen to everyone. He loved his family and was so proud of them and will be sorely missed. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends for peace, comfort and understanding. May he RIP.
