What a shock to wake up to such sad news. Ray was truly a Southern gentleman and all around nice person. So glad I got to see him at our 50th Reunion. I dont remember a time he and Ann weren't together! and with Joe and Judy! Wonderful person, wonderful life. Heartfelt sympathy to Ann and family!

I too was shocked to hear about Ray.  We're all Blessed to have known him.  Lucky for me I visited with him for 10-15 minutes the Friday night of the Reunion.  Ann, you are in my prayers.  God Bless.

This is certainly devastating news.  I have been fortunate enough to work with Ray and Ann for the past many years on the reunion committee.  Ray was always kind and had such a positive attitude.  Ray and I found out that our dads worked together back in the day and Ray and Ann have been a great source of information for several trips that I have taken in the past.  I will miss him and am continuing to think about and pray for Ann and family.

So very sorry to see this sad news.  I remember Ray always being so thoughtful and kind.  I'm glad I was able to see him at the reunion.  Ann, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Ann and Ray made our class PROUD.  There was always a smile on Ray's face -- he brightened the day of anyone in his presence.  That smile will be greatly missed.  Bless you and your girls Ann.

Contributions and out-pouring friendships by Ray and Ann Turner Lichtner are at the top of a long list of reasons why our Class of '67 is excellent and meaningful.  Thank You Ray and Ann!

The news about Ray's death has been really tought news, especially since I thought Ray was doing much better  after  his treatments at UNC  in December. Joy and I saw Ray at Christmas and were very encouraged with Ray's progress at that time.  Going back to the summer of 2017 when the Doctors thought he was having heart problems, Ray was always positive. I sincerely admire Ray's  positivity through out his difficult medical journey. I never heard Ray complain. When I would ask him specifically how he was doing, he would usually say fine; and then move on to talk about other things. I am proud to call Ray a friend.  I treasure the times we had together planning the 50th Reunion, eating lunch together at Raleigh Sports Club, and seeing each other  at church. God's Blessings to Ann and all of their wonderful family membes.

Just saw this very sad news. Grew up around the corner from Ray, close friends through the teen years. Many hours in the Lichtner house. First A/B trip without parents in Ray's 47 Plymouth convertible. Nice drive in cruiser too! Double dated with Ann's first college roommate. They arranged the introduction, I know, to help me through the loss of my brother. Thinking of others then, and I am sure throughout their life together. Both, great individuals, and a fantastic couple. We always would talk of getting together at the beach in the summer, so very much wish we had. 

My thoughts are with Ann, the children, and all the combined family members. I know Ray will be greatly missed!
