I knew Mr Casey back in the 90s when he was working at engine 5 - I lived in the neighborhood and he looked out for me when I walked home from school. My friends and I volunteered to cook for him and the firehouse on weekends and I never forgot how nice he was to us kids. I just wanted to leave a note to let you all know how kind he was to us. I'm so sorry for your loss but know that his service and presence made a difference in my life.

Ray was my classmate throughout our years together at St Rita's and Mater Christi. I will always remember playing on the St Rita's basketball team. I moved away in 1969 but was fortunate to reconnect with Ray on FB and with the guys and gals of the MC class of 67. Ray, my friend, you will be missed. RIP
