I am so very sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Ray, aka "Pops". My husband and I loved visiting with him at B Jiggers as we listened to Jeff and the guys play. That was his happy place to be on a Thursday nights. He shared many stories with us. Our deepest condolences to the family. May God bless you all.

My thoughts and prayers are with the whole family. I remember our friendly rivalry with our football teams, weddings, birthday parties, sharing the first weekend of Madri Gras in Galveston and the meals we shared. I will always remember Mr. and Mrs. Pennington for their love of family and the friends of their children. Now they are together once again.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Ray was extremely punctual.... never ever late for work. I never ever heard him curse. He dud so so much for his family , my parents and me. He was very stoical, but mom told me that he cried when TC refinery closed and he lost his job after only a year. I am forever grateful that he flew up to South Bend to take .me home from the infirmary.

Ray will be so missed by so many friends and family!!!! He was so terribly proud of his children and grandchildren. I only knew him the past few years. I agree with Pam Fritz, he so liked Libbie’s Place. He had to show me around where he helped fill the bird feeders and other little tasks... if I did not know better, he was like part of the staff being so proud of the facility. He and his friends there were truly engaged with all the offerings that Libbie’s did daily with their clients. . How lucky Galveston is to have such a Gem. He volunteered for GHF Homes Tour for me. I felt it would be good for him to be on the front porch so he could sit if he was tired a few years ago. With being house chair, I gave the history of the chosen house before the guests went inside. After doing it so many years, I found as people got on the porch they would let me know how hot they were and how long they had to wait in line...this was year in and out. Well to my surprise, that did not happen the year Ray helped me. He was down at the bottom of the stairs greeting the new group of guests asking them where they were from and on and on. By the time they got to the porch, they forgot how long they waited in line and how hot they were. It was simply so astonishing the two full weekends, my job was a breeze with Ray having them all ready to listen to my giving the history. Additionally, he volunteered for GHF Dickens on the Strand. As always, the ticket sellers are in a small little house with about four volunteers. Ray, again, took an active role putting the money drawer in place and then being our banker with giving us change as we sold tickets. What an outstanding volunteer, along with the fact of, everybody becoming friends immediately with Ray! It is very sad with the fact of Ray’s passing. I feel so badly for his family. May the Eternal Light continue to shine on his entire family at this very difficult time! With love, Mary Lou

Dear Pennington/Hogan Family, Words cannot begin to express the sympathy we feel on the death of your father/grandfather. I got to know Ray through all the events he attended at O'Connell. He was the kids biggest fan and I always admired the relationship that he had with his grandchildren, inspiring them with encouragement and respect. I hope you and your families can find peace in the memories you have of him. May God bless you and keep you and help you find solace at this time. All my love, Patti Abbott and family
