A message from Ray's daughter, Diane:
"My dad, Ray O’Canto, is the man that inspired my wanderlust personality, goofy sense of humor and coached every single one of my sports teams from kindergarten through high school. He took me to school every morning. We would sing and blast the music so loud and laugh at how obnoxious we were. He always told me I was destined for great things and that I could do anything I set my mind to. He sets a high standard for being a great provider and father. He is my shoulder to cry on through life’s dramas, always telling me that everything happens for a reason and it all works out in the end. When I am at my lowest points he finds a way to make it better through laughter or his silly impressions. Every time this man walks into a room it lights up. Sure he’s the cheesiest guy I know and we clash heads, but he’s the best father that God could have ever given me.
Our hearts are breaking. After fighting a two-month battle with cancer, Ray will be entering hospice care. If you would like to help with his medical and personal expenses we would greatly appreciate your support."
Ray O'Canto is a respected member of the community - a father, husband, partner, friend and business owner who had a lasting impact on the Fresno community.
The goal of this fundraiser is to help lessen the financial burden of the O'Canto family by helping to offset the cost of closing his business and the cost of medical bills and hospice care.
