So sorry to hear of your loss. My Dad, Fred Bogacz, worked with Ray for many years at Raytheon and spoke well of him often. Rolf Wetzell mentioned Ray’s passing in the monthly Raytheon Knickerbocker Meeting email. Hopefully Fred and Ray will connect upstairs. We lost Fred in 2019.

Dear Aunt Gerri,
We are extremely saddened at the loss of your loving husband, Uncle Ray, but of course, you were blessed with many, many happy years together and although sad and upset, we realize that, at 86, he lived a long and fruitful life with you, his family and close relatives. If there is anything that we can do to help you during this time, of course, please call.
