Ray had countless accomplishments in life, but none he was more proud of than his family. Starting with his sweetheart and love of his life Diane. Ray and Diane met as young teens and fell quickly in love. After marrying they moved to Nova Scotia to begin their family. It was a home always filled with love and laughter - Ray always making sure his family came first. He was a selfless man with a heart of gold. Being a part of his life was a gift and being a part of his family was the ultimate prize. His positive energy was infectious and his friendships were cherished by many.
