Raymond was a wonderful person who often helped me when I was principal in Millbrook. I often pick up my grandson from Elm Drive and he was always by the door making sure everyone got out safely. He will be missed.

Raymond and I worked together for 18 years. We would always laugh and talk about our lives. He will be missed by all his friends at Elm Drive but especially by me. My deepest sympathy to his family and friends.

I worked with Ray for the last 20 years. He was a kind soul with a contagious laugh who took pride in a job well done. If he knew I stayed at school past dark, he would often walk me to the door to say goodnight and make sure I got to my car safely. He will certainly be missed at Elm. My deepest sympathy to his family and dear friends.
