John Raymond ’28

Published in Nov. 20, 1991, issue

RAY MURRAY died Apr. 24, 1991, at Clearwater, Fla. He had never fully recovered from a broken leg, but was alert and full of humor until the very last. He prepared for Princeton at Evander Childs H.S. in New York. At Princeton he majored in English and was a member of Key and Seal Club.

After studying farm credits at the Bankers School of Agriculture at Cornell, Ray went to work with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. He worked for them for 42 years, until his retirement in 1970 as second V.P.

During WWII he spent four years as captain in the Air Force, and he was in the Air Force Reserve until 1958. He was always a member of the Air Force Assn.

Ray was married in 1935 to Martha Mack. There is one daughter, Nancy Dean Lehrer, and there are two grandchildren, Hilary and Brian. Martha and Ray lived for nine years in New Port Richey, Fla., and in 1979 moved to a condominium in Clearwater. They traveled widely in the U.S. and Europe. A highlight, after attending a reunion in Los Angeles in 1985 of Ray's 385th Bombardment Group, was a trip to Hawaii, as a celebration of their 50th wedding anniversary.

Ray was a loyal member of the Class of 1928. He and Martha attended numerous reunions, including the 50th and 55th. Ray's classmates extend their warm sympathy to Martha and their family.
