Ray Jutkins - By the numbers
This was the title of the conference we hosted at the Montreal Chapter of the Canadian Marketing Association. And what a conference it was!
Ray not only brought his knowledge, he did it with an endless amount of energy and enthusiasm.
Ray asked politely if anyone we knew owned a Harley, just to make the conference a little more fun! And yes, he did end up making his flamboyant entry, blues jeans, checkered shirt, bandana and all, on a week-old beauty, graciously offered by Gilles Roy, a DM and Harley 'Maniac'.
Gilles and Ray now had two good reasons for becoming good friends !
A month later, just before Christmas, my wife and I received a giant, beautiful set of gift-wrapping paper at home, just Ray's way of personnally saying 'Thanks for having me in Montreal'.
Every year since, we have never passed Christmas without having a warm thought for Ray Jutkins.
Ironically, the wrapping paper ran out this past Christmas...and somehow, I am not surprised.
Ray Jutkins - By the Numbers - will be remembered fondly.

With fond memories of Ray and with deep respect for his family.
