Dr. R. J. Ceresa

Ray Ceresa passed away on the 10th of June. He was a great philatelist, author of the Handbooks about Transcaucasia, Ukraine, Russia and the regions of civil war 1917-23. I had the opportunity to met him and still remember this day vividly. I learned a lot with the help of his books and papers. He also commented a lot on this blog.

I will remember him always as a fellow collector, researcher and friend. He truly was one of the greatest in the area of Armenian philately.

My heartfelt condolences go out to his wife and family.

    It was painful to learn of Ray Ceresa’s death. He was prominent philatelist, a knowledgeable and enthusiastic postal historian. Although it was a long time ago my meetings with him still remain in my memory as one of the most important events in my philatelic life. I’ll always remember him as a kind and hospitable person in those days we communicated on Armenian philately.
    I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to his wife June and family.
