I worked with Ray at TxDOT for over 20 years. He was a great person and a really good friend. He treated everyone with respect and loved what he did. He took pride in being named the Maintenance Supervisor. I really loved visiting the Hutchins Office at Christmas. He was a really good person. A heartfelt prayer for the family for your loss. I pray for comfort during this time.

A little something we wanted to share for Ray and Family.
We Loved Him, He Loved Us.
His life ended too soon, How will we continue to live with this loss.
Don't remember Him by the way he died, but remember Him by the way he lived.
He was a great man, active & full of life.
Now He is gone from this earth, but He will always remain in our hearts.
Though we will never forget the good times, laughter and things He has done and the happiness He has brought to everyone.
We are proud to have had Him in our life's and prouder to call Him Brother.
Until we meet again, My Brother. R.I.P.

Ray was a good man and fun to be around. He was a dedicated volunteer firefighter and you knew he had your back. Always going above expectations, staying until the job was done not matter how late or early the hour. He made the sacrifice of time and being in harms way to serve his community. I know his wife and family are proud of him and he will be greatly missed in their homes and their hearts. Well done Ray. God bless.

I will forever be grateful to Ray. When my son was at his lowest point in life ,Ray didn't look at his past he seen the potential in my son and gave him a hand up and hired him. My son is still working at tex dot and is doing awesome. Ray and I also shared the same love for music. We had so much fun singing and dancing at the lake. Thank you my friend we were truly blessed to have known you. See you on the other side. Becky and kids Pick and I are praying for you Ray was a great man.
