Staten Island, New York - Reinaldo "Ray" Suarez, known affectionately as Uncle Ray, passed away peacefully on December 1, 2023, at the age of 74. Ray was born on November 13, 1949, in the Bronx, New York. He was a beloved brother, uncle, and friend, and will be deeply missed by all who knew him.


Ray was a caring and loving person who touched the lives of many on Staten Island, where he spent most of his adult life. He had a passion for cooking and taking care of others, always ensuring that those around him were well-fed and happy.
