“Coach Turton” , “Coach Ray” - will surely be missed by many. Great smile, good hearted old school man who had a big impact on me and many others growing up. He coached and encouraged many to work hard and believe in themselves.I was fortunate to have a person like him in my life - helped pushed me and believe in myself at an early stage of my life. Thank you “Coach” for all you did. My prayers to the family - Ray was a great man with a great heart. RIP my friend.
