So sorry to here this news. My condolences to the family. I worked for, and with Ray for many years at Northrop. As others has stated Ray was a great mentor, and a better friend . Ray Hamhocker had the largest pig statue collection I ever saw . I know Ray was writing his life story for his children and he shared a few of the stories with me. I hope he finished it and you now have those memories.

My condolences to Ray\'s family. I worked for him in St. Louis and then, because of him, secured a job (career) with Northrop Grumman in Rolling Meadows. After he retired and moved to Florida, we lost contact. I have so many amazing and wonderful memories of him.

I like to say good bye to my dad. He taught me a lot of handy skills and the importance of doing a good job. We had some good times golfing and building/fixing things together. I think he had a happy and full life.
