Raymond James Mansolillo, 87, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his loving family. He was
known as “Ray” to his friends and “Papa” to his adoring grandchildren. It has been said he never met a
stranger and was adored by all who met him. Always smiling, Ray saw the best in everyone and was a
friend to all. Most importantly, he was a proud father and grandfather. His legacy is his children and
