Ray will forever be in my heart. He gave me an opportunity at a time in my life when I really needed it. He was truly a caring leader and mentor for me at Macys. When he hired me 32 years ago, I couldn't imagine the profound impact he would have on my life. I and my family owe him a great deal of thanks and gratitude. I'm so sad to hear of his passing. God rest his soul until we meet again!

It was my profound pleasure & fantastic experience to have known and to have worked under him. He shown & gave me confidence & guidance both from a professional aspect but also I considered him to be a very close friend especially whenever I needed assistance. May he Rest In Peace ! Ray, you deserve that! What an active life he live! Amen
