Ray passed away peacefully yesterday, March 4, 2017 at 1:53pm, in bed at home, surrounded by friends and family.
I think the words of David Neuman sums up Ray's life and last minutes best:
"Yesterday, it was a my honor and privilege to help my dear friend and brother, Ray Rubio, cross over following a savage, months-long struggle with pancreatic cancer. Ray's time on this planet ended at 1:53pm Saturday afternoon, surrounded by family and friends, and under superb care. What a delight it was to be best friends with Ray for over 30 years. He was a gifted practitioner of acupuncture and Chinese medicine, a swashbuckling adventurer, a devoted father, and a ferociously loyal friend. Thank you Ray for showing us how to go with honor, courage, and grit. I love you forever buddy."
The family requests that in lieu of flowers a donation is made to this fund for the benefit of Ray's Kid's.
