Grandpa Ray was the best grandpa around! He was the most kind and giving man possibly on the planet 😊 he would give you the shirt off his back. He loved to care for and help others always. My memories with my grandpa are the best whether it was Friday night dinner and a movie or a ferry ride to do the Seattle center and aquarium. He was always up for an adventure with his grandkids and great grandkids. He was an amazing man and I miss him so very much! I love you grandpa 😘
