    We feel privileged to have known both Ray & Gerry. They taught us Round Dancing many, many years ago. He had a great sense of humor! We always considered him a great friend. We saw him a few years ago at his 90th(???) birthday. RIP Ray. From Sue & Dick Snell

  2. Tom & Sally Allen says:

    Sally and I had the great privilege of working dances with Ray and Gerry for many years. They were always fun to be with, and always made me as a square dance caller look better, as they always improved a dance. We were able to travel and work with them at weeks in Colorado and Tennessee, as well as many dances in the Twin Cities area. They were definitely great to work with and were good friends. Even after Gerry’s death Ray, continued to cue dances, and up until his retirement sounded great as always. He will be missed by the dance community.
