May God take Uncle Ray & Aunt Helen under his loving care. Both were very special in our lives. Uncle Ray was like a second father after the passing of his brother Clyde, my father. It saddens me to lose the most loving, caring Aunt & Uncle. God Bless you both on the journey with our lord & savior Jesus Christ.

The Palmers are sad to hear of his passing. The DNB always seemed like more of a club than a business. Ray was great at what he did, and we always got a square deal and more.
From the Town of Meredith to Durham, North Carolina, we still miss many of our friends and business people there in Delhi.
May you have great memories of all he accomplished.
Paul, Carol, Mark,
I wanted to share a couple of things with you about your Dad. First I was honored to serve with him on the Cannon Free Library board of Trustees from 2006 until he retired in 2011. He joined the board on May 8 1972 and became President of the Board on August 27 1996 and served for 13years in the position. He retired from the board in December 2011 having served as a trustee for 39 years. I now have the honor of serving as President for the last 6 years in his place. Thanks to your father, the Delhi Jaycees were able to continue being a vital organization in Delhi. The Jaycees had held a large event that did not go over well. The outcome was a $30,000 loss to the Jaycess. Your dad decided to set up a low interest loan for us with an agreement that so long as we at least paid the interest he would continue to work with us. After many many beef bbqs at the fair on the square over several long years, we finally paid off the loan. We only had him to thank for his faith in us. In my own personal business with him he always treated me fairly and with respect. He was my brother in masonry and I will surely miss him.
Very sorry Paul for the loss of your father. It's always sad to lose a loved one. We are thinking of you. Tom and Jean
We are so sorry to hear of Ray's passing. May memories help in the coming days. He was a great and caring person.

I send heartfelt thoughts and very fond memories to dear Helen and the family. Ray defined the word "gentleman" and to have known him was truly a privilege.
May your family and friends be comforted by God's promise to swallow up death forever and wipe away every tear from all faces. (Isaiah 25:8) Along with the promise of a time very soon when no residents will say, "I am sick". (Isaiah 33:24) Remembering to the promise of the resurrection hope for both the righteous and unrighteous. (Acts 24:15)
Ray was a real gentleman and friend to all who knew him. I'm sure he will be missed by many.
Our condolences to the family.
Please accept my condolences on the passing of Ray. He and Helen were members of the DeLancey church for a while and I enjoyed getting to know them. They let me borrow their car for a several weeks after I totaled mine and it meant so much to me. After they couldn't make it to church any more we (first with my mom, then my sister) would take them holiday goody bags and enjoyed hours-long visits with them. He will be missed. My thoughts are with Helen and the rest of the family.
Our Thoughts and Prayers are with you all. He was a Great man and will be dearly missed.
