Ray was very kind, and always made time to say hello and speak with me whenever I visited UPM.

I respected him very much for all that he knew and accomplished in the Plastics Industry.

My condolences go out to his family for their great loss. I'll truly miss him.

Find your Wild Streak!

So many memories of some wonderful times.

I am the son of Ralph Powell, the passing of Ray was felt deep in my heart.
I worked at UPM almost every summer, mostly making boxes. They did let met drive the forklift once and I spilled a pallet of plastic across the shop floor. Well I was only 14 years old.

I fell in love with the process of injection molding, and opened my own company 20 years ago in my garage.

Steve and Jason, I'm sorry to hear about your father's passing away. I never had a chance to meet him but from what little I read he sounded like a wonderful person and I would have loved to meet him. My prayer are with you and your family. May he rest in peace.

We were fortunate to fine UPM, 15 years ago to mold our platform for our balance equipment. UPM worked with us all thes years with such professionalism but kindness. Our company was sold the end of 2011 and I miss our association. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. And how could you not love a man who has "his own system" Nance
