I would have to say my favourite memory of uncle ray was when I first met him and he awed me by showing how good at pool he was with one hand behind his back. I miss you uncle ray and just wanted to send my condolences to all of the family that I never get to see or hear from. God Bless you all.

I was privileged to know Ray Dowling. As a young entrepreneur, was invaluable to me as we built our business around his prolific ideas and always being available.

I remember our lunches and quality time he would share with his sage ideas and always caring ways.

I respected Ray as a businessman for his ethics and ideals which were the hallmark of his family life and his adoration for his wife and children.

I will always remember Ray and young Jason moving up

I will ALWAYS remember selling machines to Ray. When I would drop by to see him, he would say "What do you want Filippone"" What kind of JUNK are you trying to see us today?" Then he would invite me into his office and give me a purchase order for a JSW machine. After that, he would invite me to be his guest for lunch. He never let me pay for lunch and HE was my customer. That was this

And, I know you raised some great kids and lived a happy good life.
