A pivotal moment in history for Ray was when the Second World War started, as Ray remembers having to leave his house on foot in order to get away from the Russian Army, forcing his family to start over in Germany and later in Massachusetts.
Ray has traveled to every country in Europe several times with his wife. He’s also traveled to New Zealand, and Australia. Once a year, Ray and his wife would travel to Mexico for an annual vacation together.
Ray chose Melody Living Lake in the Hills after relocating from Rochester, New York to be closer to his daughter. He enjoys it when Robin, our Life Enrichment Director, plans fun and interesting events such as educational or musical programs, going on outings to fun places, attending parties, and partaking in Wine of the Week.
