Raybo Update?

Has anyone received any updates on Ray's health? I have not heard from him in quite sometime. Its unlike him not to respond to the emails and phone calls. Just hope he is doing well. If you need to PM me please do so.

Pace, sorry if this is not in the correct thread, but did not know where exactly to post the question.

Yeah saw this then. In the last week or two, I've called him and left messages emailed no response. I know a bit more than most about his condition. With no response it makes me a bit worried. He taught me quite a bit.

I put up something on his website and haven't heard back. I'm officially worried as well.

Of course I'm worried about him too..

But what happens to his website if he's not paying the bill...
His Alldata program sent me to enjoy Excel and learn a lot from it..

Do you have his Black Box program?

I talked with Ray earlier today. He had a few issues, but those are behind him now, but his condition make using the computer a bit difficult so he will refrain from using the computer for bit longer.

I am afraid I have some bad news to report regarding Raybo. I just received an email from his sister, Jonnie Ray passed away yesterday about 1245. It was his wish to be cremated and have his ashes interred at a veterans cemetery in Dallas.

I sure learned quite a bit from him over the years. RIP Ray RIP

Very sorry to hear. Really liked his contributions.

Raybo introduced me to equal length golf clubs. I'm sure he would be happy to see how well Bryson Dechambeau is playing with them.
