Ray Jackson Photo Gallery
1931 – 1989
This is a tribute to a man who was a brilliant young actor and one of the kindest people in the world.
When one is young you never think about sickness or dying, so when it happens it is devastating to the partner who is left.
RAY JACKSON was my soul mate, my life time lover, my partner and most of all my friend we were together for just 40 yrs. But as they say “The Good Die Young” and the price of great love, brings great misery when one of you dies, and to this very day I am still lost without him.
