DALEY, Ray Herry The world lost a wonderful man on 6/10/2015, Ray Herry Daley.
Born 3/23/1932 in Florida, he led an exemplary life, before dementia robbed him of all he knew. He will be much missed by his beloved wife Mary Hirschfeld Daley, his sister Sarae Morton, his sons and stepchildren, Christopher Daley, Dan Daley, Marla Hirschfeld and David Hirschfeld and their spouses, Stephanie, Joan and Becca. He was an attentive and loving grandfather to nine grandchildren. After graduating from Harvard, Ray served in the military as a navigator/ bombardier on transoceanic refueling airplanes during the Korean War.
His early acting career can still be witnessed on late-night television. He lived a much-remembered life in Madrid and Rome before returning to work in the US as a list expert in the fast-growing advertising industry.
He was passionate about alternative fuels and worked as a consultant on Capitol Hill before moving to California.
His tennis partners will long remember his bullet serves and his ability to get his racquet on the ball before anyone else could. On his best days, he brought sunshine, love and humor to his surroundings. On his worst days he brought more sunshine, love and humor. His gentlemanly manner and charm will long be remembered by all who knew him. Ray, rest well in Heaven, you deserve the best! The family will celebrate his life in a private memorial service.
