Ray Dusza, RIP

I was saddened to learn of the death of former Erie County Legislator Raymond K. Dusza yesterday, having known him both as a journalist covering him and as an employee.
Regardless of his political affiliation or beliefs, Ray was an amazingly kind, gentle hearted man unless his beliefs were offended and people were taken advantge of and being treated bad. A proud fighter for the underdog, Ray was always pleased when people acknowledged his hard work on the item pricing law when and after it was approved.
Known as Mr. Cheektowaga, he was also a proud U.S. Army veteran and paratrooper, and Ray also always treated those people who worked for him with kindness and respect, and thanked us for doing things for him, even when we considered it part of our jobs.
You will be missed, Ray.
