Dr. Lolla's early success -- LISTed on the Golden T-Square as top mechanical drawing student in 1959-1960 academic year.

Martha (Nestich) Novelly on Jun 24, 2018

Dr. Lolla was a student in my Dad’s mechanical drawing classes at Farrell High School many years ago and was honored as one of Dad’s top two drafting students for the 1959-1960 school year. Dad always recognized success by adding these names to his “Golden T-Square.” Dad was so proud when Ray became an Industrial Arts teacher as well and followed his career for many years.
My sympathy to his wife, children and grandchlidren. I was also a classmate of his brother Richard’s from first to fourth grade at Our Lady of Fatima School in Farrell from 1960-1961. My sympathy to you as well, Richard.

Richard S. Fabian on Jun 24, 2018

I am so very sorry. I knew Ray when i was a student at Sharon High School in 1966. Ray was a very well liked teacher at Sharon High School and it has not surprised me Ray did so well in his life. Ray was a super nice man.

Keith and Linda Finkral on Jun 23, 2018

We met at Purdue University and spent at least 30 Thanksgivings together with our families. Ray was so kind and generous with his family and friends. He had many skills, including cooking and a great sense of humor. He was a great Dad and we are proud to have known someone like Ray. Our hearts are broken.

What an extraordinary guy, a man's man yet as sweet and thoughtful as they come. And really funny too! For years I have modeled my hugs after his. Not a Thanksgiving passes without the fondest memories of Ray and the family. Love, Alex
