My Father, Frank Malan, was good friends with Ray while in the Army. When Ray was released from Army he joined the LAPD. Ray talked my Dad into joining the LAPD as well. My Dad remembers Ray as a fine man, a loving father and husband, and a good friend. Mr. and Mrs. Hicks and family, we are truly sorry for your loss.
