Condolences for Raymond V. Smith, Jr.


Great family friend to the McKenzie Clan. RIP Ray!
From Michael McKenzie

I met Ray in the mid 70’s when he was calling on our stores. He always had time to spend a few minutes visiting and letting me know what was happening in the marketplace. After his retirement we would run into each other occasionally and I always enjoyed catching up with him. Ray was a Great guy.

Sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

I send my sympathy to Ray's family. I was also a Northsider and attended St James and Aquinas and graduated a few years after Ray. We used to play softball at Erickson School together with other Northsiders. May he R.I.P.
From Bill Riley

We would like to express our deepest sympathies on Rays passing. I remember his story telling and sense of humor. His friendship to Mom and Dad was very dear to them. I know they would love to give you all big hugs! We will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers.

Dan and family, Ray always had a big smile and friendly demeanor when we crossed paths at grocery stores even as we were competitors in the meat industry. I have also dealt with Dan over the years and he inherited his dads thoughtfulness and cheerful attitude. Blessings to the whole family as we remember Ray, this kind and gentle soul.

Marie and family. So sorry for your loss. Ray was a good man. Working with him years ago was a good time. His customers liked him and those in the plant got along with him too. He always had that ready smile and willing hand if you needed help. I'm sure the whole family have many wonderful memories to share.
