To the Evans Family: My heart is deeply saddened by the loss of Coach Evans. I had the privilege of being mentored, not just coached, by him at Lamar High School. The lessons he taught me have stuck with me for my entire life. Rest in Power.

I am sorry to hear about Coach Evans. I was the head coach at MacArthur when he was at Eisenhower. We had many conversations during that time. He was a good man and a good coach. My prayers go out to his family.

It is with a sad, and heavy heart that I write these words. Ray was a very good and important friend and member to the Scott family. He was solid support mechanism for the Scott family. He and my sister were in love for many, many years. Sharon will muss him dearly. He adored our mom Adelphia Catherine Scott, and she adored Ray. When ever there was a phone call to or from California, my mother and Ray would get on the phone and talk and laugh. These are the things that I will remember most about Ray. Being a football coach myself, Ray would share some of his strategies, training techniques, plays, etc... his understanding of the various defensives was second to none. He was an accomplished and proven Coach, and was not afraid to share his knowledge and those that needed it. A good man. Good bless

Ray, I honestly can say, I wouldn't be where I am today, if you haven't showed me the way. “Those we love never truly leave us. There are things that death cannot touch.” ― Jack Thorne ~until we meet again~

Ray's death leaves me with a heartache no one can heal. His love leaves an everlasting memory no one can steal. No words can express the pain and sorrow you are going through. Ray was an inspiration for many, he had a big heart and a magnetic personality. My deepest sympathy to the Evans family during this time. My prayers and blessings are with you always. 🙏💙 Sharon
