Ray was one of my best friends and neighbor. We grew up together, living just across the street together in Deptford.

Man, we had so many great times together and I’ll always remember his honesty and kindness throughout those “early years”.

Rest in peace my friend !!

Little lost for words. Ray was an awesome individual. We had many good times together. Always remember the trips to the blue hole. Also we played over the hill softball together, he was a good third baseman. Going to miss you, R.I.P. my friend. Alex Madiraca

I will remember you as the kind hearted, fun loving person that I have known for 50 years. You were a great friend and teammate, taken from the game of life way to early. Rest easy my friend we will take it from here. God bless your family at this very difficult time. Vinny Castellano
