Ray was always Ray, i would see him in DC a lot and I'd sell him a car or he'd sell me one, but he was always the same person, a good person. He must have loved golf because at any given time you could see him sitting in his truck watching the others play if he wasn't. Bottom line Ray was a good man. Gary McCurry
