Thank you for the link. I have not read it but, being from San Diego, I am familiar with most of his story. He did have a temper. When the San Diego Padres (pro baseball) played their fist game, he got on the P.A. system after the game and apologized to the public for how badly the players had played. His wife Joan ran McD's after Ray had passed. She was a kind and generous woman with quite the opposite temperament from Ray.

I read the Ray & Joan book last night 

 

I highly recommend it.  I hoping there is a copy at a library near you 

 

here are some pics of the Joan and Ray  Salvation Army community centers she endowed   they are community centers in at risk neighborhoods around the country

 

the first one she sponsored while she was alive  , in San Diego.  it was built in an area where both parents or single parents had to work two jobs to get by , and

 

meant to be a place where children could find a safe place after school  She donated 80 million dollars for this center

 

joan and ray

 

after she died she gave the Salvation Army 1.5 billion dollars to build more centers

 

as I understand it there are 26 centers

 

their official name is  Ray and Joan Kroc Community Corps Centers.        Corps being a Salvation Army Term.

 

look for this book if you can,
