To all of Ray's family...Sorry to hear of his sudden passing. Ray was and always will be part of our "boating family" from Dredge Harbor. We will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers, and hope memories of the past replace those of sorrow in your hearts and minds. Now, every time we see a light in the night sky, we will know that it is Ray as the ultimate light keeper! Rest in peace Ray and thank you for being our friend! Geri & Tim Scassero
