It is with great fondness that we remember Ray Sullivan, our Fairfield Footlighters Co-Founder, who passed away at the age 83 on January 22, 2015.  As many of you know, Ray was incredibly passionate about community theatre. He gave tirelessly of his time, both on-stage and off, spent many hours directing shows, and served as Treasurer for over ten years. Ray co-founded Fairfield Footlighters in 2001 with his good friends, Sterling Uhler and John Brunner. Over the years, Ray worked backstage, acted, produced and directed many shows including "Crimes of the Heart" in 2006, and "Wait Until Dark" in 2012. We miss you, Ray!
