Dearest Marlene and family... may your beautiful memories surround your hearts forever. It was a privilege for us both to get to know Ray and his sense of humour. Love from Margie and Dave Stenton. xxx

Very sad to hear of Rays passing Marlene. Spoke to him just a fortnight ago and he was in good spirits.
I look back with great fondness in our battles on the tennis & squash courts as well as many fun social times.
Our thoughts are with you and the girls and extended family. RIP Ray.

Marlene. So sorry to hear about Ray's passing. Memories of the time you had together will stay in your heart always. I know that this is a difficult time for you and your loved ones, but remember that you have friends and family to help you through. Thoughts are with you.

Marlene and girls, I am so sorry for your loss, and will treasure our memories, so glad we met for the meal in February, it was a lovely night. Its the end of the line for the Orlowski name, with no more boys to carry it on, sadly. Take care and treasure your memories as we will.

Marlene, Carmen, Kirsten and families.
Deepest sympathy, love and hugs to you all on the loss of a truly wonderful man.
Neville and I will always treasure our memories of the many fun times we have had camping in Alexandra with Ray. We will especially remember the 'interesting' brews that we have tasted, the many rugby debates that we have had and all the stories that Ray told!!. Our social life in the camping ground will never be the same but you can guarantee we will still raise a glass for Ray every afternoon at 4pm.
Big hugs to you all.
With all our love, Julie and Neville Gardner

Marlene & Family
Our sincere condolences to you and your Family. We have fond memories of competitive and friendly games against Ray. Always a competitor but also a good sportsman. He will be missed by us all on the green.
