  1. Michael Painter says:

    RIP Dad! You will be missed by many. I am glad for the time we got to have in your last days with us for the chance to let you know that I love you! I know you are reuniting with Grandma and Grandpa Painter, Uncle Jim, and cousin David just like the family reunions we used to have at Aunt Darlene and Uncle Jim’s! I have great and fun memories to cherish and I thank you for that.

  2. Paul Beck says:

    The most talented person not to be famous. Could, play any instrument, sing any song. Though most of his fans have passed he will be missed. RIP Ray.

  3. Tom Roberts says:

    I grew up 2 blocks from the Painter family. Keith is still one of my best friends. When I was at Keith’s house you always knew when Ray was around! Ray always liked to kid and joke around with us younger guys. I wish I had just a bit of the musical talent Ray had. Hard to believe a boy from Canton, Ohio could play the fiddle like Ray could! Sorry that Ray is gone too soon. It would’ve been great to hear him play and sing one more time. Hopefully we will do so again someday!
