  1. To the Ocon family-
    We are very saddened to have learned that your father/grandfather has passed. While we did not personally know Ray, we feel we knew him through his daughter Theresa (whom we have known for over twenty five years) because of her stories of him and by her example. We feel your loss of such a caring man, father and friend. You are very blessed to have him and the memories of him. We know that he has imparted the most important qualities onto his children and grandchildren. Bless you all.
    -Phil and Jeff

  3. Dear Ocon Family,

    Your father was an incredible man who will be greatly missed at the Milpitas Sports Center pool. He swam every day and held down his lane swimming butterfly. He always had a smile and was loved by many. I feel fortunate to call him one of my good friends and am so glad my son had the opportunity to hang out with him at a swim meet, proudly and repeatedly saying, “Hi Ray!” while climbing on him. You are blessed for having such a beautiful father and we are all better people for having known him.

    Love, Aaron Bueno (and son Radford)

  4. To Theresa and the Ocon Family,

    I know this loss is great and I am thinking of you so much. The memories of his love for you will bring you much comfort and joy in the times ahead. It is these memories that will push back the pain and bring smiles once again. I wish we could be there with you but you must know our thoughts and prayers are with you during this most difficult time.
    With our deepest sympathy and love,
    Susan and Tom

  5. Hi Mike, Theresa and Mitch, I’m so sorry for the loss of your Dad. I met him when I was a teenager and all through the years he remained a strong, quiet and calming presence to everyone around him. My thoughts are with you all right now. Love, Aunt Evelyn (from years ago)
