This weekend, Ray Soto, veteran member of the ADCH and ASMP, was unfortunately killed in an automobile accident. After being the staff photographer for the Port of Houston for ten years (& also where he met his wife, Susan), Ray continued as a freelance photographer, doing work for many of us here in Houston. He was a service man… having served in the Army, he was known to say how he “saved our asses” doing his tour of duty in Germany. A VERY talented guitar player, Ray channelled his inner Stevie Ray through his band the Shadowcasters from “back in the day”. For those who knew him, he would probably have something very witty to say, so raise a toast and a laugh to Mr. Ray.
A memorial service will be held Tuesday, January 22nd at 1:30 pm at Waltrip Funeral Home, 1415 Campbell Road, Houston, TX 77055. Please contact Bea Garcia, email@example.com for donation details.
The Houston Chronicle has a brief write-up of Ray.
