Ray Burton will be sorely missed but he will not be forgotten

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

Saturday,  I had the opportunity to attend the memorial service for Ray Burton at Plymouth State University. Kudos to the university for arranging such a wonderful tribute to Ray! He would have been so pleased and honored to see so many Republicans and Democrats in one room together.

From the president of the university to one of Ray's interns, every speaker had their own unique perspective, but the theme throughout was a continuous acknowledgement of Ray's commitment to the people of the North Country, District 1, and the entire state. He set a standard of excellence that all public servants should strive to achieve.

Ray was a mentor and a friend to me and to so many others — he will be sorely missed, but not surely not forgotten.
