    Ray, how special you were to the Dahlberg’s. Bob hiring you in the first place and how surprised you were when John started as a freshman. Working with you was always a surprise, pleasure and laughs. I will always remember your laugh and your support when Bob was ill. Thank you for all the memories. Oh will you be missed

    Coach Dodge you will be missed by many. You, Coach Snow, and Coach Haynes help start what would eventually be a fantastic football tradition at Mission Viejo High School. You educated many young adults to become responsible adults and for that I am thankful. Rest In Peace Coach!
