In Memoriam Ray Raineri (1938-2015)

Sunday, February 7, 2016

The Oakland Heritage Alliance (OHA) community has lost a guiding light with the passing of local historian and tour leader Raymond Raineri. Ray, as he was popularly known, devoted himself to collecting memories of his childhood North Oakland neighborhood, and his Italian American heritage. Following his retirement, Ray's enthusiasm for North Oakland and Temescal history found a wide range of outlets including curating numerous exhibits at the History Room at the Oakland Main Library, and contributing articles to local newspapers such as the Piedmonter and the Montclarion.
