Sad news. Tremendous passion for our philatelic field and monumental work.ReplyDelete
Thanks Ray, for the vast philatelic legacy which will live on for years to come.ReplyDelete
2017 marks the year two of the greatest patriarchs of Armenian stamps passed away. First Zakiyan and now Ray. I still remember the time when I visited Ray and enjoyed talking to him and his wife. My heartfelt condolences go out to the family. Rays work is among the most important sources for Armenian philately (and others) and will be remembered for a long time.ReplyDelete
Rest in peace Ray!
I was invited to Ray's house @ 1993, spending a delightful summers afternoon pouring over part of his vast civil war collection. A wonderful, warm-hearted man who encouraged me to venture into new collecting fields which I never regretted. Sleep peacefully, Ray.ReplyDelete
