Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • I truly treasure all the great times we had at the Rockwood and all the off color jokes we told each other for a good laugh. I don't think they have found anybody at the Rockwood to dance with all the ladies like you did. Rest in peace my friend. - Posted by: John Evan (friend) on: Mar 25, 2023

  • Mr.Rayner was my teacher at RB Russell in the late 80s. He was a great educator and a profoundly funny, decent man. I have many great memories of sitting in class laughing, talking about music and life. So long Mr.Rayner, you made school a better place. My deepest condolences to your family. - Posted by: Jay Bruneau (Former student ) on: Mar 25, 2023
