    Was shocked and saddened to hear of Ray’s passing. He was a good friend and dedicated servant of the Lord. He served my wife’s funeral mass just 6 weeks ago. I dearly miss you, my friend. I know the Lord greeted you with open arms saying “Well done, my good and faithful servant. Welcome to your eternal reward.”
    Denise and Ray’s children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, you all have my deepest sympathy. Take comfort that he is now at peace with the Lord.

    My deepest condolence to Ray’s Family. Ray was a good man. I remember him serving many of the funeral Masses. He was very active in the Third and Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus. I had the pleasure of driving him to his new house, after a 4th degree meeting, a few months ago, [after he had his knee surgery]. He will be missed.

    Ray was a great friend and brother Knight. On behalf of myself, my wife – Mary Kay, and all of my brother Knights, I can’t begin to express the sorrow we feel. To Denise and the rest of the Naso family we are so sorry for your loss and we grieve with you. Ray meant so much to us. He was a friend, fellow parishioner, and a brother Knight. He was always willing to step forward and lend a hand. He was such a big part of St. Anthony parish, such as acting as a Mass lecturer, Eucharistic minister, server for burial Masses, and offering his time in many other capacities. He was a great Knight and Officer for our council in the role of Recorder. He was also a 4th degree Knight. I will always remember the good times and laughter that we shared. A life well lived in Faith. God Bless!

    Denise, Renee and I would like to offer our deepest sympathy to you and your family. We have known Ray for many years.Renee and Ray used to volunteer at St. Anthony’s P.S.R. program. I knew Ray from the many volunteer projects we did together through St. Anthony, The Knights of Columbus, and Mount Alverna Nursing Home. Ray’s sense of humor and his commitment to making sure things were done the right way will always stay with me. I’ll never be able to listen to the Eagles “Take It Easy” with out thinking of Ray standing on the corner in Winslow AZ.
    May God bless you and may his Holy Spirit be with you and your family as you are going through this difficult time.

    I came across Ray’s obituary by accident. Shocking to hear. My sincerest sympathies to his entire family. I last saw him at my mother’s funeral earlier this year and I am truly saddened to not have paid my final respect at his funeral service.

    He seemed so full of life, particularly of late with his Facebook postings. Rest in peace, dear cousin.

    Just learned this morning of Ray’s passing. He was one of our most interesting Anthropology majors at CSU, having returned to finish a Bachelors degree after retiring from his several careers. His classroom contributions were always challenging and often amusing. Shortly after he graduated, he returned to campus to take photos with each of his professors and say thank you. We were lucky to have him with us and share a period of learning that was a new adventure for him.
    Deepest condolences to his family and friends. Ray was a bright light.

Please share your thoughts ...
