Former Brookings resident Raymond E. Furtado, 84, passed away peacefully Sept. 3, 2012, in Modesto, Calif., due to complications of Alzheimer’s.  

He was born July 27, 1928, in Oakland, Calif.

Ray spent 60 years in San Jose, Calif., working and raising his family.

After retiring from IBM in San Jose, Ray moved to Brookings. Ray loved his 20 years of retirement in Brookings with his wife Vera. He loved living by the ocean, fishing, acting in local theater, and joking around with just  about anyone.  The memory of his sense of humor will live on in everyone he knew. 

A private burial will be held. No local service.

Remembrances  may be made in his name to Community Hospice, 4368 Spyres Way, Modesto, CA  95356.

Submitted by family.
