  1. Dear Desiree & Family, I’m so very sorry for your loss. Not too long ago Ray and I talked…he was so very proud and excited about his granddaughter Madeline and his role as grandfather. Ray and I worked together at Kodak for many years. Professionaly they were the best of times filled with chalenges and friendship. Ray was well respected for his accomplishments and relationships with all. My condolences to the Wallner family.

  2. Dear Desiree & family,
    I am so sorry. Ray was so nice to work with and was always very thankful for the work I did for him. He was complimentary and made my job a pleasure. I will miss him.
    I am praying for God, who loves you all so very much, to comfort you and give you peace.
    Mary Corwin

  4. Des, Ron, Holly and Madeline – Words can not express the sorrow I feel. Losing Ray is a huge loss for all of us. I’ll never forget the times we spent together doing debug at Kodak, Ray made the work fun. I can still hear him calling me ‘girl’ while smirking. He will be sorely missed.

  5. I am so sorry to hear about Ray. I met Ray a couple of years before he retired from Kodak. We were involved in a very stressful project and Ray was my shoulder to lean on when I was having a bad day. I will miss him tremendously. My payers and thoughts are with his family.

  6. My most sincere condolences to Desiree and the rest of the family on you loss of a husband, father, grandfather, brother, and wonderful human being. I first met Ray at Kodak over 30 years ago. We worked on many projects over the years and I gained much respect for his love of his family, technical knowledge, his work ethics, his personality, and his friendship. At times we may not have agreed with each other on how things should be done, but we always had an open discussion and eventually agreed on how to proceed. At times when things didn’t go well and I would catch that little smirk from Ray knowing he enjoyed my dilemma, especially when he got to tell me ‘I told you.’ I also had opportunities to travel with Ray where I really got to know him and had many enjoyable hours just sharing stories and building our friendship. As our careers changed course over the last several years, we were still able to keep in contact, but the time between visits grew further apart. With the use of the internet and email we were still able to communicate but not like we did for the first 25 years. He is gone for now and we will all share in the loss of Ray, but he will always be in our minds in the years to come.

  7. The pleasure of knowing you was mine, thanks buddy, you will be missed by many, but mostly by the ones who truely knew the freindly, good, kind hearted person you were.

  8. We are so sorry to hear the sad news and offer our sympathies to Ray’s family.
    It’s been a few years since most of us left Kodak and I do miss the people I worked with. Ray and I used to compare fish stories quite often, and I can only hope he has found calm waters and peace.
