Tribute to F. Ray Weems
It is with great sadness and the deepest of regret that we announce the passing of Southern Maryland Cable, Inc.’s founder, F. Ray Weems. He passed away on Monday, August 31, 2020. After many years in the Utility Industry, Ray along with his wife, Janet, made their dreams of opening their own business a reality by starting Southern Maryland Cable, Inc. in 1982. Ray’s forward thinking, exceptional work ethic, long term commitments to his customers, and an unwavering desire to do the right thing made him an extraordinarily smart and accomplished entrepreneur. He built a company that has stood the test of time, and one that still holds his practices and principles in the highest of regards over 30 years later. In 2003, Ray and Janet sold the business in order to spend more time with their growing family, however Ray could still be seen around our offices. Alongside his family and the local community, our employees who had the privilege to work with Ray also feel a tremendous loss and will miss him dearly but are grateful for the lasting lessons he passed along.
We would like to express our deepest condolences and prayers to the Weems family during this difficult time. To view information about his memorial service, please go to the link below.
