Thanks to Russ and Vivian Stephenson for letting us know of Ray's passing. Any of us that ever worked with Ray knew we had a friend for life. Here is what Russ had to say about Ray and his wife Betty:
Ray Ho was a quality member of the Hughes Airwest sales team, always ready to support the programs in which he was involved, and inventive in the ideas he brought to any effort to which he was directly involved or not.
Many RW employees enjoyed the many courtesies Ray and his wife Betty showered on visitors in Hawaii, extending themselves far beyond any normal courtesy. Few knew Ray's extensive background in banking and finance and Betty's extensive businesses which she operated in the Far East.
Ray was always an "I'll be glad to help out guy", which he and Betty performed with enthusiasm and dignity.
A loss to the world of a truly able gentleman. Our deepest regrets to his family.
Russel V. Stephenson
