    My sincere sympathy to all. Ray farmed many years for my dad when I was growing up. He always moved his equipment to different parcels & would walk back home to get whatever he needed (which was usually 3-4 miles). Many times my mom would see him walking, & she’d say, let’s go give Ray a ride. He was a great guy. RIP Ray.

    I was privileged to attend Dist. 70 with Ray, played on the 4-H softball team with him, went fishing in Minnesota and Canada and had a final visit with him this past January. He was always good natured and a great friend. I will miss him,

    My sincerest condolences to all of Ray’s family.
    I have many wonderful memories of Ray as a hard working neighbor, wonderful friend to the Bauer family and a dear-dear man.
    My most fondest memory is of Ray bar-tending at our wedding in 1974 (the Colon Parish Hall) along side Lyle Christenson and Shorty Otte… it was as much fun for our guests to go to the bar as it was to dance.
    Hugs-n-love to you, Ray!
