In Memoriam
It is with deep regret that we share that CASA Past President Raymond C. Miller, passed away on December 27, 2020. Before retiring, Ray was the general manager of South Coast Water District and executive director of the Southern California Alliance of POTWs. “Ray Miller’s passing was a bittersweet moment for me. Ray was both a mentor and friend,” shared Mike Dunbar, General Manager at Emerald Bay Service District. “Ray introduced me to the water and wastewater community of California. I will never forget the lunch meeting we had in which Ray asked me to be his assistant (and eventually General Manager) of South Coast Water District. He introduced me to CASA which opened up a whole new world. The greatest lesson that Ray imparted to me (and there were many) was “It is a people world”. I will NEVER forget that. All of my contacts and relationships stem from that simple yet profound statement.” said Dunbar. Ray, you will be dearly missed. CASA extends their deepest condolences to Ray’s family, friends, and all those whose lives he touched, especially at South Coast Water District and SCAP.
