Memories Timeline


  1. Friends since 3rd grade. I never heard of anyone saying anything ill of Ray; or of him saying anything bad about anyone else. Ray was a friend to anyone he ever met. A uniquely “one of a kind” individual. I am proud to have had Ray as a friend. P

  2. All of us at the old Bonne Terre High School loved Ray Boyd. He was the kindest person I think I ever met and always enjoyed hearing our stories. When I think about growing up in Bonne Terre, Ray is one of those people I will always remember.
