Ray Holder was a long time contributor to this forum.
He also contributed an article to the main site:
He has been missed around here these past few months but his caring and helpful posts will remain for future visitors to this site.
That would mean a lot to him.
Thanks, Ray, for your kindness and generosity of time.
This message came today from his daughter:
I am writing with the sad news that my father died on Monday. I know he was a regular contributor to your site.
Dad had been failing particularly badly since December when he was hospitalised with a bout of congestive heart failure. He was unable to return to his home and spent 8 weeks in a nearby nursing home where he died. Fortunately I was with him when he went. Dad would have been 89 next month.
