March 3, 1952 – November 25, 2022
Make a donation in Ray’s memory to the Pomo Project (in Santa Rosa)
Ray Horiuchi was a deep and humble soul. He was a man of integrity with a big and compassionate heart.
A carpenter by trade, Ray expressed his creativity through wood and stone carving. He was happiest when he could combine artistry and carpentry. In his spare time Ray loved reading, collecting art, visiting flea markets, listening to music, and watching movies. He was a great conversationalist, and an even better listener.
Ray will be remembered by many for his kindness and willingness to step up and help friends and neighbors in need. He donated blood more than 65 times, and when the fires hit Sonoma County he collected bedding and other necessities for fire victims. Often, Ray would assist friends and fellow artists with various projects, including art shows, fundraisers that supported cancer survivors, and activities by local Indigenous people.
Ray was committed to numerous Social Justice issues, and years ago became a friend and supporter of the Pomo Project, a small, community-based organization in Santa Rosa. The Pomo Project has been hosting free educational and cultural events each October for almost 14 years. Ray not only attended local Pomo events, but for years he could be counted on to show up early to assist with preparations.
Ray was integrated into our lives in many different ways. He is dearly missed.
