In Memorial & Memory of: Ray Slocomb - FJRay

Post by extrememarine »

Post one reserved for summary. Please share your pictures and memories of Ray (FJRay) here. I will pull the pictures from each post and host them on the forum serve to ensure they are not lost should the orignal poster change or cancel their photo hosting plan in the future.

Don Carver posted this to share with the group about Ray's passing.

Details not fully available but apparently Ray had just finished supper, settled in his easy chair and passed on. Time of death not known, Sherlie thinks it might have been last Wed/Thur night. I sent email to Ray on 11/11/21 and hadn't heard back, very unusual.

Please keep Ray's family in your thoughts and prayers.

Folks, please take a few moments to go through your photos and see if you can find more pics of our friend... his daughter, Sherlie, is downloading them to create a slideshow so any memories/images you have that she could use would be much appreciated.
