"You are in my thoughts frequently. It seems that your presence is strong in my mind. I am happy to report that the Memorial Golf tournament has funded naming rights at the new Pulteney Free Library for the circulation desk to be known as the Ray Dutcher, Jr Desk. Expected ground breaking is in 2018 . It is fitting that you are remembered in a place that is a community support environment.
Love always and forever missed, Mom And Dad"

"We had a family brunch at Ray and Bridget's today.Our thought was to share memories of you and to laugh and cry. We didn't have a sad time as our memories are positive and uplifting. We looked at a photo album that followed some high lights of our time together. To me it was a reminder of the legacy you created in your too short time with all of us. My admiration for how you conducted your life and the family you created continues to grow. Mom and I are proud of you and your legacy.Miss you and love you.

"I remember this day so well 58 years ago.  At the time, I didn't understand why Gramma Dutcher was so happy, but once I saw you, I could relate.  You were the cutest baby and the very first one in our family.  Once I became a grandmother, I truly learned about what it feels like to love a grandchild. No one can explain it...it just happens.  I think of you often, Ray, and I know you are doing wonderful work for God.  Rip and know you were loved and missed. Love, Aunt Pat"

"Your memory is one of the many things I am thankful for. His presence is felt in many ways in the Dutcher family and the community where he made countless contributions of faith, time and money.
The Memorial Golf Tournament (2nd Annual) made contributions of
$16,500 to his favorite causes; another way he keeps giving to all of us.
Missed and loved by many.

We keep moving forward but when we look for you we find you've gone.  I'm praying for comfort for all those who miss your love and presence and will not forget you.

"Ray was a strong man and I loved that he really thought before he spoke. Something I myself need to work on and will remember him for. We all had many great times at the ball field with our friends and family. I have many great memories of him and his wonderful family and the summer parties they had. Thank you Ray for just being you."

"I will miss Ray forever.  Even though we didn't see each other very often, when we did, it brought back so many memories of that little boy that I loved so much.  He was my first nephew and I was only 10 years old; so, he was like a live baby doll to me.  I went on many vacation with him as a child and we always had so much fun together.  He grew up to be a wonderful person, so giving and caring.   Although I am sad to see you pass on to a better place, I know God has great plans for you.  Love and miss you always, Aunt Pat"

"Oh my cousin, your passing has saddened my heart. There were miles between us...I always remember your smile and your witty ways. I wish that i could say something to mend your families hearts. This place will be even more empty without you hear. I hope heaven takes care of you. Until we see each other again cousin...I miss u & love you dearly."

"Where did you go ?
Kind brother Ray
I miss you so
On this sad day

The words are spoke 
Where is thy sting?
Within our heart
That fails to sing

Confess I will
Times faith is strong
This bitter pill
Is not so wrong

Those times too short
And now is doubt
To dance, cavort
Is just "right out"

Desire to stay
I know you did
For work for play
Shrinks say for Id

Not your focus
The ego self
The ones you loved
Forget the self

Fierce was your way
Determined grit
Kept sloth at bay
As God has writ

Passionate man
Your focus strong
At first to gain
Then right the wrong

Your faith it grew
Blossomed so fair
To watch you live 
True heart laid bare

Your way once rough
Became so gentle
Reborn you were
In soul, not mental

Your action swift
Considered well
Stopped much too soon
I often dwell

Your absence large
Made your escape
Can't fill this void
The empty gape

There is a plan
We must remind
Our woeful hearts
Cut so unkind

We turn ourselves
To one another
And God of course
Tend well our brother "
