Dear to Ray’s heart was his love of dogs and playing stringed instruments. He had a God given compassion for others; especially the incarcerated and homeless. He loved the fall season, especially marshes, fall leaves and sunsets. He saw God’s hand in his work, his family, his neighbors, all children and appreciated each day as a gift. Ray’s Irish roots enhanced this ability to enjoy good food, a good story and a good laugh. There will be no visiting hours as per Ray’s request. A celebration of his life will be held Monday, January 22, 2018 at 2 p.m. at the Summerside Church of the Nazarene. Interment at a later date.
