Edwin F. “Ted” Raye, a 60-year resident of Elmhurst, passed away recently at the age of 84. Former General Manager of Kentile Floors. Beloved husband of the late Anna Marie, nee Gunnell; loving father Ed, Kathleen (Roberto) Cuca, Margaret (Robert) Chaidez and Marcus; devoted poppa to Nolan, Colin, and Owen Chaidez; fond uncle to Joseph (Heather) Gunnell and Julie Cleff and great-uncle to Ivy and Magnus Gunnell; loving grandfather to his grand dogs, Bear, Panda, Teddy, and Angel. Ted never met a dog he didn’t like. He looked forward to walking his dog around the neighborhood while enjoying a cigar. Passionate about cooking, he believed everything was better cooked in butter. He taught his family the best meals come from instinct and to never follow a recipe. He knew every line from his favorite movies: Blues Brothers, Airplane, and Casablanca. A devoted Jeopardy fan, he watched every episode and seldom missed an answer. He loved watching episodes of NCIS. If you asked him, the original cast was the best. In lieu of flowers, please send donations in honor of Ted Raye to Huntley Animal Shelter, 13005 Ernesti Rd, Huntley, IL 60142. All Services and Interment Private. Arrangements handled by Gibbons Funeral Home, Elmhurst. 630-832-0018 or gibbonsfuneralhome.com.
