    Saddened to report that my father Raymond Boniface passed away this morning at the age of 95. A passionate car enthusiast, my father owned more than twenty V12 Ferraris over the years along with many Alfas, Lancias, Maseratis, Mercedes and more. He was a great man that touched so many lives.

    See you on the other side Dad.

    Bob your Dad had so many incredible stories--especially about his time in Italy post war, seeing the Mille Miglia--vivid descriptions of how life was in those days. His meeting and becoming shipmates with Tony Parravano on a transatlantic voyage is a favorite of mine.
    To have known your father was one of life's great privileges.
