Ray was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas. Ray met his wife Kathy on a blind date and a year and a half later they were married in 1962. They spent 59 loving years together. Ray was a devoted husband and talked often of how being married to Kathy made him a better man. Ray worked as a manager for most of his life and was loved by all who worked with him. After retirement, he was a volunteer at Arlington Memorial Hospital. He loved to help people. In his free time, he loved to read, watch Hallmark movies, and spend time with family. The best thing about Ray was his sense of humor. He loved to tease people, especially his grand kids! Ray was truly one of a kind.
