Ray Fish Electro Adapter My Obituary

I always found Ray to be very intelligent, and a shrewd business man. He would be 90 years old, if he were alive today. I met Ray Fish of AQ Die Casting/Electro Adaptor on 12/11/03 when my maintenance manager, Victor Ortega, gave me his name telling me that Ray had two Toshiba die casting machines for sale, a 350ton and a 400ton with ladlers prints and manuals. The machines did not work so Ray wanted $5,000 for both die casting machines. AQ Die Casting Electro-Adaptor (https://www.electro-adapter.com/)

In 09/15/12, Ray Fish contacted me to say that he was closing down AQ Die Casting but keeping Electro Adapter. Ray sent me several dies and tooling for several customers. Since then, Ray was on my cookie and almond roca list.

On 11/11/21, I received this email from Ray regarding my Christmas almond roca update. “Thank you for the thought I lost my sweetheart and best friend 2 weeks ago to the virus 69 years of bliss. God Bless her for being there for me as always. My holidays will be memories Be Safe & Be Well, Ray”
