Ray Cranbourne passed away in December last year and it took a while for family and friends to organise their schedules and travel arrangements, but that they did. Ray’s daughters Cheryle and Lorretta flew in from the US and wife Nida and daughter Raeanna from the Philippines. Others like Ken Sadler and his wife flew in from the UK and from across Asia to gather in Berts on January 29 to remember Ray, his life and work, and most of all his warm friendship.
It was a wonderful evening with old friends and colleagues catching up, sharing anecdotes and raising several glasses to Ray over the course of the evening. Ray, of course, was an FCC stalwart and one of the Club’s iconic Vietnam photojournalists who made Hong Kong his home after the war and became one of the region’s prominent photojournalists.
