I never met Ray, but talked to him on the phone and corresponded with him. I was interested in the Althoff family as I’m one of Clara Althoff Albrecht’s granddaughters. He sent me his old olive green Althoff book. It helped me “see” the family. I wish I could have met him in person. I was at Cap when Bob and Marilyn were there. I am sorry for your loss. I saw the obit in the Dispatch even though the Althoff was missspelled.

Very sorry for the families loss. Tho I am related as a distant cousin, I did not meet him. I did meet up with Ron Althoff a few months ago. Your loss is a heavy burden. May God’s love aid your family.
