A little bit about the man

Raymond Robert LaMay

Raymond Robert LaMay, son of Joseph and Rita LaMay, was born October 1, 1942.  He had three sisters, Anne, Regina and Patricia.

He lived in Southington, Connecticut until his family moved to the neighboring town of Meriden where he graduated from Maloney High School in 1960.  After high school he enlisted in the United States Air Force and served for 4 years.  Ray obtained a college degree from Central Connecticut State College in 1975.  He was employed in the steel business for many years.

He married Lois Bray in 1972 and they were happily married for 34 years.  He was the father of four sons: Curtis, Jason, Kevin and Joshua.

Throughout his life he was actively involved in the Boys and Girls Club of Meriden and the Jack Barry Little League.

Ray was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in 2006.

Aside from the facts, I would like to tell you a little bit about my father.  Ray was a simple man, but one that you could count on to be there when you needed him the most. He found the good in a situation and brought out the very best in people.  Personally, I was always able to go to him for advice.    I miss that the most about him.  He would sit with me listening quietly until I was finished; only after did he talk, expressing his thoughts based on his knowledge and experiences.  I remember my father being most passionate about two things, his family and sports.  He had a huge presence in all the sports my brothers and I played while growing up.  My Dad was very active in the community, giving much of his time coaching, teaching and mentoring the youth of Meriden.    Ray instilled his passion for the community in all of his sons.  Jason and Joshua are both physical education teachers.  While Kevin and I have coached a number of different sports teams.

Things changed drastically when he was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and although the last year of his life was sorrowful, it was filled with many joys as well.   We as a family had the opportunity to spend quality time with him at various sporting events, vacations, and even in the family living room.

Ray was a remarkable man to all that knew him.  His impact on our lives will never be forgotten. ~ Curtis Francis LaMay
