We are so sad to hear of Ray's passing. Ray gave my family, along with other family memebers, a tour of the Klesken Hill Museum for our Turner reunion. Our grandson was enthralled by Ray and listened to his every word during the tour. Ray's father came to this area along with my ancesters in the early 1900's so we somehow felt a connection with Ray. Our sincere condolences to all his family and friends.
