What a great, contributing individual! He made the most of the life he was given and realized this life wasn't just about him. Thank you for sharing this.

He is a true hero. Not by what he attained individually but what he did to serve up in the life of others. A wonderful example of what we should all try to be where this life has placed us. Life is an opportunity every day. I am moved and humbled by Ray. May God richly bless him.

For those Maners who have enjoyed following this incredible story about an amazing person, Roman "Ray" Ciesinski.
My "step-dad" Ray finally got his Purple Heart yesterday. 66 years later...
