I very much regret this huge loss and feeling the pain his family are going through, I want to share the hope that very soon "will be a resurrection from God", as the Bible tells us in Acts 24:15. Courage and strength to all your family at this painful time. www.JW.org

My sincerest condolences go out to Brother Ray’s family during this difficult time. It was my privilege to share laughs, drinks, and great stories with Brother Ray during many a Phi Alpha Delta convention. He was a mentor, an example to all us young attorneys on how to be a real leader, and most importantly a friend. My favorite memory of Brother Ray was when he invited me, fresh out of law school, to his home to share a drink and instruct me in my obligations to PAD as the brand new traveling membership services consultant. Brother Ray shared not only his experiences in the same position when he was out of law school, but also his philosophy on the fraternity and our obligation to help others. It was a lesson not forgotten in all the years since. While it saddens me that he will not be a part of the future adventures of PAD, I know he is in heaven right now holding court, regaling the angels with a humorous story, and asking for his usual scotch on the rocks. On behalf of the members of Phi Alpha Delta, especially District V, please know Brother Ray and his family are in all our thoughts and prayers. Sincerely, Robert Lara New Mexico Statewide Alumni Chapter ‘07

We will miss you, Uncle Raymond! You were Special to us! Our thoughts will also be with everyone who will have the privilege of being present at this special man's funeral. May Raymond's soul rest in peace and we all can take solace in the fact that we are better people for having known him. Love, Jerry and Sandra Flake

I fondly remember Uncle Raymond visiting our home in Houston as a young child. He was in law school at that time, and would receive his mail at our little home. We would all rush to the door to see him. He always had time to entertain us little ones, and we looked forward to his company. I regret that our family lost touch with him. I know he lived a full life, and hope that he rests in peace. P.S. Uncle Raymond....my son just began his first semester of law school at the University of Houston. Let the tradition continue.

I recall many fun times, especially at South Texas College of Law.

I first became acquainted with Ray Judice in 1961 when he contacted me regarding establishing a chapter of Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity at South Texas School of Law. He then obtained a chapter and was the Charter Justice of that chapter which was known as the Samuel Houston Chapter. Upon graduation, his interest in Phi Alpha Delta escalated and he became assistant to the Supreme Justice of the fraternity, and then served as District Justice. In 1968, just several years after he established the chapter, he was elected to the International Executive Board as its Supreme Secretary. In 1970, he became Supreme Advocate, in 1972 he became Supreme Vice Justice, and in 1974, he became the Supreme Justice of the fraternity. He was responsible for developing much of the memorabilia of the fraternity including a medallion for distinguished service members, the official key, a lapel pin, and a very large beautifully engraved gavel of the fraternity, as well as a large wooden carved logo, which is displayed at the head table of conventions. Ray also authored the official history of the fraternity as well as numerous other noteworthy fraternity publications. He served the legal profession as a district court judge in Houston, Texas, and later became the executive director of the Texas Judicial Council. He has attended every convention of the fraternity subsequent to his initiation, with the exception of that held in 2012, which he missed because of illness. He attended the 2014 convention in Scottsdale, Arizona, where he served as an inspiration to all in attendance. PAD has lost one of its most outstanding leaders.

I first met Ray in 1966 when he went to the U of Memphis law school to help me start a new chapter of PAD. After graduation I went to work for PAD for a while and interacted with Ray constantly on fraternity business. In the summer of 1970 I stayed in his home when I attended the month long National College of District Attorneys at the U of Houston. We remained friends and Brothers ever since. Ray called me almost on a monthly basis in recent years and of course I saw him, and somewhat saw to his needs, at our PAD convention this past August. It is hard to accept that this pillar of our Fraternity is gone. He will be missed but never forgotten. Rick

To the family of C. Raymond Judice, I'm sure by now Ray is debating some finer point of law in Heaven. He probably started with St. Peter by saying "that's not the way things are done in Texas." My fondest memory of Ray was at a mock wedding staged at the 1988 Convention in Scottsdale--where I made a motion that Justice Miller allow me to marry another PAD (no, it wasn't legal as Bob Redding pointed out). The motion was hotly debated on the Convention floor and duly passed, and Ray played the part of my father while Frank McCown played the bride's father. I'm sure that Ray is in Heaven sharing a few laughs with Bob and Frank now about the incident. I am confident you are aware that Frank was revered by everyone in PAD. My condolences to you on your loss and my congratulations to God on having Ray come home. Sincerely John K. Norris, Blackstone Chapter '82
