5 thoughts on “Bush, Raymond J.”

  1. We are great friends or Ray and Sharon and loved spending time with them. We loved hearing Ray’s golf and fishing stories and always competed for the last piece of bread when we dined together. He is irreplaceable and we will never forget him. We send our sincere wishes to his family and many, many grand- and great-grand children, whose names we could never remember!

  2. I came to know Ray playing golf with him the past several years on Tuesday mornings. He consistently hit the ball down the middle of the fairway and was a great putter Ray’s character stood out to me. He was humble, gracious and always had a kind word.

  3. Barb,
    I am so sorry to hear of the passing of you Dad. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I pray for strength and peace for you all, during this very difficult time.

  4. I worked with Ray at Lincoln Engineering Company many many years ago. He was nice and fun to be with. I pray for strength for his family in this difficult time.

  5. I can hear him saying, “While you’re up, grab me a…” (even if you were NOT up!). His smile out shone all other smiles around. He will be missed here on earth, but Heaven has gained quite and Angel!
