My heartfelt condolences to Marti and the Trosen family. Ray was one of the sweetest people I have ever met. Without him my mother would have never known what a casino looks like from the inside. On behalf of the entire Toth family, rest in peace Ray.

Sincere sympathy to his wife Marti and family on the Lisa of their loved one . I was able to enjoy working with Ray at the casino and recently was able to join him and a group of deal dealers playing cards at his his home.

I got to know Ray when he and Virginia started at North Hill School in the 4th grade. Ray and his close friend, Jack Williams, were the leaders of our football and basketball teams and they continued that through high school. I always enjoyed keeping in touch with Ray at our high school reunions and relive old memories. He will be greatly missed. My sympathy to Ray's family and to Virginia. John Koelling, Eugene, Oregon
