McManus, Raymond Anthony

March 25, 1957 -October 11, 2004

Story from the Quilt:
Raymond Anthony McManus died as a result of a car accident on October 11, 2004. He was a wonderful Christian, husband, father, son and friend. A quiet man and highly intelligent, he understood that life was more than material wealth. Ray never subjected his body to drugs or alcohol and ran for exercise. A frequent blood donor, Ray’s family knew that he would want his organs donated. The quilt square is Ray’s favorite color, yellow, from one of his tee-shirts. The picture is of Ray preaching. “It’s how you end up that counts” was on a note in his Bible.
