    I just learned of Ray's passing. I was his supervisor at the Garage. He worked down at the Greenhouse as you know and drove a truck and school bus. He was of all the people I supervised he was my rock. I could talk to him about anything. He was well grounded. I retired in 2010. what that firm did to the people at the warehouse and garage was not good. I was supervisor of Transportation Warehouse/Garage and closing of all schools. Again I'm so sorry for his passing. Clifton Avers cliff6982@yahoo.com
