Subject: Message from Ray Roy's daughter

Yesterday, Ray took his last flight. Below is a quick bio we would love you to share with the Delta family.
Warm regards from my mom, Peg Roy.
Raymond Roy took his last flight on August 17, at the age of 93. He grew up in Lowell and graduated from Lowell High School and Lowell State University. Peg and Ray met in 1945 while riding the bus between Lowell and Boston.

Ray began flying very early in his life. His early flying included giving rides for $2.00 to any civilian who was daring enough to ride with him.

He began his career in the Army Air Force as a flight cadet. He began active service in Army Air Corp, during WWII, teaching Chinese officers basic flight training. At the end of WWII, he joined the Air Force Reserves and was activated again during the Korean Conflict.

After the Korean Conflict, Ray joined Northeast Airlines and eventually, Northeast was acquired by Delta Airlines. Ray retired from Delta as a captain in 1981 and enjoyed a fabulous retirement with Peg, traveling the world and enjoying their family of 4 children, 11 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren.
