My wife and I came to know Ray through Clotile. Ray and I shared a lot of the same background as we were both Michiganders, Spartans (Go Green!), military veterans and fellow Methodists. Ray was a very friendly and personable man who was easy to get to know and like. RIP Ray, John

I knew that every year, before the summer was over, my mother would tell me that Ray Fox had stopped with blackberries he had
picked for her to make jam with. The entire Fox family were wonderful neighbors.
