Dear Friends-

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.

I like Tom knew Ray from our time in Dublin. Tom said it best - we are all stunned. My deepest sympathies to his family and I will miss him also.

I am one of Ray's roommates from his year in Dublin. I reached out to him recently and discovered his passing; I am stunned. I last saw Ray during the summer of 2015 and spent a Sunday afternoon with him and his beautiful children. That year in Dublin is one of the most memorable of my life, and Ray was one of the most memorable people in it.
