I received word this week that Ray Moore passed away. Ray was a big part of the Showers of Blessing Nazarene radio program many years ago. He was a singer, educator, and fine Christian gentleman. I first knew Ray through our mutual interest in ham radio and have chatted with him many times through the years.
I invited him to our church in Louisiana and he brought a wonderful service in song. After the service one of our men commented to me, “Now, that’s class.” I think he had it right.
When I went to Olivet, Ray had already left the school, but while there, he had had a big hand in the beginning of the broadcast radio station there. I worked at that station and fell in love with radio.
Later on, because of that interest, I got involved in Amateur Radio, and then met Ray. Today, I am not too active in ham radio but I am, once again doing broadcast radio. Ray Moore had a hand in that, even though I had already started that journey before I ever met him.
