  1. So sorry for your loss. I will miss him also. He was not only my boss but he was one of my best friends. Love to everyone and if I can do anything let me know.

  2. I knew Ray for many years with Amoco and BP. He was a great guy as well as being a great employee of Amoco and BP. Please accept my condolences.

  3. I am sorry I will not be able to attend the service. I worked with Ray at Doraville in the 80’s and knew him to be one of the hardest working Amoco folks ever. He personally helped me greatly on our jobs and always stood ready to lend a hand. I always look at folks based on two criteria. Did they pull their own weight and then some? Were they fun to be around? Ray handled both of those with ease. I am proud to call him a friend.

  4. I was saddened to hear of Ray’s passing. I knew him as both the terminal manager in Doraville and the JV manager when we needed him to shake up the malaise in that organization. His friendliness and desire to do the right thing was impressive. I am glad to have known him as a friend during our Amoco and BP years.

  5. Ray,
    Your spirit will live on in those who you touched with your kindness. You were not just a boss, but a kind friend. I will always remember the things you did good for others.

  6. Brenda and Jason,
    I too am so sorry for your loss. I loved Ray as a boss and friend. He was always there when I needed him to help me and that was many times. I will always cherish the memories of our time at Doraville. May God bless you.

  7. I am so sorry for your loss. Like many others, I worked with Ray and found him to be a good friend. He was always eager to help others with his vast knowledge of the business. He helped many of us along the way, in our career with Amoco.

  8. Brenda—-
    What a friend of everyone. He earned the highest respect for all the help, support and care he was so unselfish in giving. In a lifetime seldom is there an individual who sets the bar as high as Ray.. He treated everyone as a customer. He defined the highest level of excellence in serving customers. We all are far better thanks to Ray Jarrett.
