Ray appreciated the beauty of nature and spending time in the outdoors. He was an avid hunter and fisherman.

Ray will be missed by his daughters: Amber D. Buffum of New York and Natasha R. Buffum of New York; grandchildren: Connor, Payton, Madilynne, and Emory; brother: Robert H. Buffum, Jr. of Swanzey, NH; sisters: Brenda E. Buffum of Keene, NH, Cynthia A. Buffum of Louisiana, and Belinda J. Dunton and her husband Brian C.
