He worked in Irish Sugar, Avery Weighing Scales in England and was in charge of engineering apprentices in FÁS for several years before he retired. Ray was a real gentleman, always willing to help others. He had a great way of imparting knowledge and made it enjoyable too. He was gifted. To the family and friends of both of the aforementioned operators we extend our sympathy.
