Ray was my first Operations Officer at Ft Leavenworth, Kansas. As an apprentice, he had me scared to death, but I later learned Ray had a huge heart. I will always remember many of the lessons I learned from Ray. May he rest in peace and God Bless his family.

I am saddened to hear of the passing of Ray Speiss. Ray was my ops officer during the late 70's while I was assigned to the Wainwright RA under the Alaska Field Office. Ray was always there to provide guidance and words of wisdom when you called upon him. I last saw Ray when I departed Alaska but I heard over the years that he was in declining health.

I owe a lot to Ray for his guidance and assistance when I was a young junior WO.

Rest in Peace Chief!

Respectfully,
Chuck Allgood

Ray and Mary were with us at Leavenworth in 70-71, leaving there for Alaska. The last time I saw them was when they picked me up at the Leavenworth airfield a few years ago for Bill Freeman's funeral. At that time Ray was dealing manfully with serious health problems. Our condolences to Mary.
