I am Ray’s daughter in-law Marian Rickwood. His Son’s Steve & Dave thank the Police for their acknowledgement of Ray’s passing. Unfortunately we can’t help with any of his service details but if you could please amend the date of death which was Thursday, 09/05/19. Also Ray did not have a son killed in a motor accident. Both his son’s are alive and well.
Ray was truly one of the most kind hearted and generous persons I have ever known who touched so many people in their lives and the hearts with his generosity. A truly great man, gentle giant and loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather who will be missed enormously.
Many Thanks in advance.
