    Ray was a special friend to my late husband, Michael Estep, and to me. He rode my husband’s motorcycle and wore his jacket in the funeral procession to Central Texas Veterans’ Cenetery in Killeen. After that he took my motorcycles, taking them to be inspected and running them a while. He always showed me kindness and often called to check on me. Ray was happiest touring and helping people. He was a noble man and a true friend.
