Hard to believe it has been that many years. I worked with Ray in the greater North Bend area for several years. Had him as my backup MANY times. He probably saved my butt more times than I want to remember, and in the process taught me skills that helped me an others last until a safe retirement. He was a Big Guy ( and I am 6'2" ) with a smile and a big heart. Rest in peace my friend, as Ray pronounced it "Sem fwun".
