Sorry to hear about Ray (AKA Godfather). He was an excellent mechanic and concrete pumper. I spent many years on his website discussing and learning concrete pumping.

Brian we all learned a lot from Ray 

he made a lot of guy mad but it was

Rays style, he fought with suppliers making

Worthless parts so he made his own better than

ever he also made Hose Sleds ask Tank he has some,Ray had a one of a kind Business

He tried a couple of times to sell either no one had the money or just couldn't handle it.

Same here,Ray always had good advice. Sometimes I didn't get what he was trying to teach me because I was so new to pumping. I think I frustrated poor Ray. We will all miss his lifetime of knowledge now that he's gone. Terry
