Daddy loved the weather! When traveling, and in a new hotel room, he would check if they had the Weather Channel first. After checking the weather information, he would then look for EWTN (Eternal Word Television Network) while unpacking.
When visiting his and Mom's home, it was not uncommon to find either one playing on the television.

Anyone leaving a visit with '"Daddy" better be prepared for an 'enormous' hug!

I wanted everyone to know how much we loved Ray (grandpa to me),and how big of a family will miss him. 4 biological children,2 step children,21 grand-children,24 great-grandchildren,and 3 great-great-grandchildren. That makes 5 generations alive when he passed,pretty impressive I think, we know he loved all of us from the bottom of his heart. I know he knows we did. The only thing that is making this sad moment a happy one for me is knowing he is with grandma Ann again. I know we will all miss him greatly talking to us with the tooth pick in his mouth or his binoculars in his had at the kitchen window watching the birds or just listening holding our hands. We will see him again this is not forever. I love you grandpa and will be seeing you again with grandma.
