Sadly, we confirm that our dear friend and partner Ray Oakes passed away on Friday, January 24th. Our office and Ray’s family have appreciated the many expressions of compassion and support during his courageous battle with cancer. We have been advised that Ray did not want a funeral or memorial service, and his family intends on honouring his wishes and have asked for privacy during this difficult time.
