Raymond B. Stanis Jr., 74, of Chicago, Illinois. Best dad, best husband, best brother, and best Papa. Ray touched so many lives, personally and professionally. He was passionate about whatever he did in life; family, work, cycling, he dedicated his life to being the best he could be. Ray was a mentor to many, whether it be coaching school sports or teaching his trade to his apprentices. Devoted and loving husband of Nancy, married for 51 years. Attended Maryknoll Seminary where he developed a solid foundation and met lifelong friends. Successful business owner of MBR Tool, whose legacy will continue for many years to come. The simple things in life brought him the most joy; sitting in his backyard, birdwatching, observing nature and if you truly knew Ray, riding his bike. True to his life, Ray spent his last day doing the things he loved most. Gone too soon, but will never be forgotten. Loving husband of Nancy Stanis, nee Arispe; beloved father of Michelle (Jay) Woodson, Raymond Stanis, Bridget (James Gallagher) Stanis and the late Luke Anthony Stanis; cherished grandfather of Calista, Kenny, Tod, Luca, Ronan, Cole, Luke and Peyton; devoted brother of Pamela Barlow, Patricia Stanis, Mary (Jerry) Stanis-Mason, Judy (Nick Koukourakis) Stanis and Joe (Debra) Stanis; fond uncle of many nieces and nephews.
