February 3, 1936-January 1, 2016
Ray Diller, 79, passed away peacefully on New Year’s Day after a long battle with Parkinson’s disease.
Ray was a graduate of Los Angeles High and received his B.A. from Cal. State at Los Angeles. His stock brokerage career spanned over 50 years with several major investment banking firms where he was a “super star”. His clients literally numbered in the hundreds, both institutional and personal; and regardless of their worth or size, each received the same incisive advice with the utmost professionalism. He loved the market, and it was not only his work, it was his overriding passion.
Ray was most of all, a family man. He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Mimi, who he adored. Their lifetime love affair was a wonderful role model for their 2 children, Joey (Sarena), Shelby (Kevin) and grandchildren Gabrielle, Lindsay, Toby and Naomi. He is also survived by his brother Erwin, many wonderful nieces and nephews and was preceded in death by his sister Shirley.
Ray was a “good guy”, a Mensch in the true meaning of that word, and he will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
Funeral services will be private. There will be a memorial in the near future and family and friends will be advised of time and place. The family requests that for those who want to make a tribute in Ray’s honor that they do so to:
