I was also a classmate of Ray, I left the USBP for the Arlington TX Police Dept in May of 1986. I never heard of Ray's death till a group of fellow APD Officers returned from the Texas State Police Memorial Service in Austin. They brought back a program where I found Ray' s name as well at that of Mke Maldonado who was one of my FTO while I was in BP at Laredo. Today I had heard of an Officer being killed in the Houston area so I was checking this site. RIP brothers.
