Dad, you are the absolute best man I had in my life. You showed me how to be a kind, gentle, loving person. You taught me what true love was through watching you love mom the way you did. You showed me what kind of man I needed and because of you I found one. You were and always will be our entire world. You cared so much for our family, always making sure everyone was taken care of before taking care of yourself. Your missed everyday more and more. We love you with all of our hearts. I promise to take care of mom. Watch over our family and guide us in the right paths.
I love you and miss you dearly.
-Forever daddy's little girl

Ray, was one of those techs that went the extra mile, and even though he just put in 20 hrs straight and someone needed heat, he was there - thats why we called him "THE RAY BARBUTO" - a legend in the industry

Carol and family, I am so sorry for your unimaginable loss. Ray took care of my family for over 20 years, he even came to Nashua for me and my kids when we needed help. He was so much more to us than our plumber. He spoke of his family often, as I am sure you know you were his world. I wish there was something I could say to help you through this terrible time. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts. With love, Denise Salvato (Fleming)

Uncle Ray,
Though over the years we have not been close, you will be forever missed. I remember all the times I spent growing up in your home. You were an amazing husband, father, uncle and more. Many times you had picked me up and drove me home. You always made sure everyone was fed and happy after your extremely long days working. You were an amazing person. You impacted many people. You showed my brother how to do your trade. He still uses all of those skills on a daily basis at his job. Without you we would not be the people we turned out to be. We will miss you and love you forever!
