A solid, hard-working man. Worked long and hard as a logger, and was completely dependable and honorable to all his customers. Ray and his crew hauled many a load of timber for my dad, and later for me. Showed openly his love for Butchie, kids, and grandkids. Will be missed by all who knew him. Sincere condolences to Butchie and all the family.
