We lost Ray (Joe)... suddenly and unexpectedly this week. His loss has left his friends and family grief stricken, and faced with the added stress of his final arrangements.
Ray was a good friend to so many. He often gave his time to lend a hand if needed, and liked to look out for those close to him. His four children were his utmost pride, and he took great joy in being their father and watching them grow. He was also especially close with his parents, grandmother, sisters and brother.
The family is now trying to sort out this unexpected loss and put together the finances for Ray's final expenses.
Our final goodbye to Ray will be at Timothy E. Ryan Home for Funerals at 145 St Catherine Blvd. in Toms River. It is scheduled for Wednesday, June 21 from 5-7 pm.
Any donation to help the family with these unexpected expenses at this stressful time would be more helpful than you can imagine. Your contribution, no matter how great or how small would be an incredible blessing. We know times are difficult for everyone and we understand if contributing is a hardship. We hope that you will still join us in celebrating Ray's life on June 21.
