  1. You had a huge influence in my life- a true gentleman, always had a smile. Your gentle nature was inspiring. Rest In Peace Uncle Ray, you are now with your first love Aunty Betty.

  2. We were saddened to hear of the passing of Ray, he was a gentleman in the truest form and was the kindest and most sincere person we have had the pleasure to know. The world is a better place for him having been in it and our hearts and thoughts go out to Helen, David, John and their families.

  3. A wonderful service for a wonderful man. We were pleased to learn so much more about his fascinating life.
    We were so lucky to have him as a neighbour and a friend.

  4. A touching and moving celebration of Ray’s life and times. I have fond memories of visiting with Ray and the family on his lovely property. He was truly both a gentle man and a gentleman, who lived a full and active life with passion and maintained his independence and spirit. Indeed when I spoke with him late last year he recounted his adventures in driving back and forth to Gippsland on a regular basis to help out a friend. My thoughts are with David, John and their families. Vale Ray.

  5. I knew Ray all my life (80 years) I was heart broken when ray passed, he was a great friend & mentor, his advise has been instrumental in my career. I loved his witt always having a laugh I remember when he told me there was a new movie at mentone picture theatre (tom mix & cement) as i was about 8 year old I had no idea why ray laughed when I said we should see that.
    At the age of 6 to 8 years I accompanied ray on his run down the mornington peninsula selling fruit & vegetables on the way staying o/night at rye & returning next day,. I have a life time of memories associated with Ray & the allnutt family.
    My sincere condolences to David,John & families RIP Ray
