Lost a Friend


first_imgThis past week Ray Furney, age 74, of Lawrenceburg passed away suddenly at his home.  Ray and I have been friends since the 1970’s.  He was a science teacher, coach, and athletic trainer at Lawrenceburg for 36 years.Ray was one of the earliest trainers I can remember at the high school level.  His science training allowed him to be an athletic trainer back in those days.  Today there is a specific program for athletic trainers.  Ray was very instrumental in helping Lauren Hill’s family in her battle with a cancerous brain tumor.  Because of his involvement with Lauren, Ray’s family asked that memorials be donated to Lauren Hill’s The Cure Starts Now.  I will miss him!last_img
