Mrs. Carbone, Ray, Kara, we’re so sorry and have been praying for your comfort. Mr. Carbone’s memory has always been such a positive, wonderful influence in my childhood. When you moved to Colts Neck I remember the welcome he gave me and how he reinforced my appreciation for being outdoors. Ray and Kara, you guys were always such a testament to what a kind man he was. So much love to you all, and continued prayers, from Val, Mark, Cora, Stephen and Amelie.

I had known Ray for nearly 11 years. He was such a sweet, kind man, a real gentleman -- so unusual these days. We had many a wonderful chat over the years at our British car club meetings and events. I will really miss him but feel comforted knowing that he is smiling on us all. Whenever we are on a car club drive, I am sure Ray will be there with us in spirit. How he loved his Austin-Healey 3000. It was a beautiful British car and owned by someone who really appreciated its beauty and performance. RIP, friend. Until we meet again . . . .

I am so sorry to hear of Ray's passing. He was always a joy to have at our house, where he and Dad would sit in the driveway and talk. He was so kind and generous. May piece be with the family during this time.

I will miss Ray so much, and will remember his kind heart, colorful stores, and adventurous spirit. He was the type of person where you could always just pick up where you left off in a conversation, even if significant time had passed between you. Luckily, I was able to catch up with him at a family reunion last year. After I told him I used to work at Jaguar Land Rover, he immediately responded and conveyed his passion for British luxury cars. Always the Renaissance man, he told me about his Austin Healey and how he personalized it and kept it in mint condition. He even shared a beautiful picture of himself sitting in the car surrounded by his grandchildren. The picture captured Ray’s essence - light hearted fun, craftsmanship and invention, and most importantly, family first.

Ray and I never met personally, but we had a long e-mail friendship since both of us were proud owners of an Austin-Healey BJ8. Besides being an owner, I have kept the BJ8 Registry database since 1997 and Ray was a very enthusiastic supporter of the registry and that gave us frequent occasion to correspond with each other. I was very sorry to learn of Ray's illness and passing. My sincere condolences to his family and friends on losing a fine man. Rest in peace, my friend, and may there be Healeys in Heaven....
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

All of us at the Positive Earth Drivers Club are deeply saddened by Ray's passing. As our longest-standing member, Ray was a font of knowledge about club history, and I never tired of talking to him about it. Ray was a true gentleman and a genuinely nice guy who loved to share his knowledge and enthusiasm with the rest of us, and we'll all miss him dearly.

When we were kids, my brother and I were fortunate to be able to grow up with a cousin like Ray. I remember one time when we were all spending part of the summer at our bungalow on the Delaware River, Ray displayed his knack for figuring things out.On a windy day he tied a sheet around two oars and put them in our rickety little row boat. As Ray expected, the wind caught the sheets and sped us past the boats with motors. It was a fun time.

I always enjoyed our conversations about our daughters and LBI. Rest in Peace, you will be missed.

It has to be well over 25 years since I first met Ray at a Positive Earth Driver's Club meeting. As a new member of the club Ray and Mary Lou quickly made my wife and I feel welcome with their friendly and kind personalities. We had the love of the British car hobby in common, but Ray was much more than just a British car club friend. Ray was always ready and willing to help out with whatever you needed. When I bought a property to start a business Ray jumped right in and help fix the place up and doing everything he could to help us succeed. It was this kindness and the fun we had working on and driving our cars together that I will miss greatly. A person of Ray's caliber doesn't come along very often and he will be missed by everyone that knew him. My sincerest sympathy to the Carbone family.

To Rays family I am truly sorry for your loss. I knew Ray for a very short time. But as I will explain He knew of my Family for over 55 years. Last fall while attending the Brits in the Beach car show I came across some beautiful Austin Healey cars. While talking to my wife all about these cars the owner came up to me and told me It seems you know a lot about these cars. I proceeded to tell him I grew up around these cars and my family had a foreign car parts business . Ray then asked where it was located I told him Staten Island. He told me there was a place where he used to go for parts for his 3000 on Staten Island . He said the place was Stuckers Auto Parts. I then Introduced myself, Hi I'm Ronald Stucker. The look on Rays face was unforgettable. He then proceeded to tell me some stories about having dealt with my late Dad (this was in the mid and late 60s). He told me that some of the parts on the car came from the yard. He then insisted that I had to and MUST join the club to keep up the old tradition of people who know about and love these beautiful old cars. I started learning about these cars at a very early age 6 or 7 years old. I am so sad about Ray not being at the meetings any longer . The last meeting I saw him in Feb. I brought a couple of pictures of my dad working on an old Healey taken in the mid 60s. Ray just looked at it and shook his head. I am again saying I am so sorry for your loss and telling you even though I only knew him a short time he left a huge impression on me . My sincere sympathy to the entire family Ron Stucker.
