    Ray Viramontez

    Today on another forum Sam Welch posted the news of the passing of Ray Viramontez last Saturday.
    Ray was a great gentleman and dear friend to many engravers including Sam and myself.
    Sam Welch gives Ray credit for starting him on his illustrious engraving career.
    For 27 years Ray was the supplier of the "Bearclaw" fine silver inlay kits to my many engraving students.
    Nothing was too much trouble for Ray when it came to helping other engravers or students.
    My condolences to his family and his world of friends.
    Rest in peace Ray.

    John Barraclough.
