Ray was fortunate to be able to spend a great deal of each summer on the island of Spetses in Greece. His relationships there are deep and he had a very special bond with the island.
He was also a professor of agricultural economics at the American University of Beirut.
For those friends who knew him during his time in Lebanon, or during his summers in Greece, we offer a place to tell us what you remember best. Please add to the comments below and send us pictures
