Ray attended school in Spaulding, Okla.
He later married Roberta Sue Sims in Enid, Okla., on Feb. 6, 1975.
He was a dedicated hard-working man, loving father and loved to spoil his grandkids. Family gatherings and activities with his grandchildren were his favorite times. He enjoyed having his children at the house, and while they were there, Ray loved singing and playing with his grandchildren.
Ray enjoyed camping and fishing with his whole family, where there was plenty of laughter and happy times. He had such a big heart and loved helping others. He never knew the word no for anyone, but rather would assist them in any way he could to see them better off after they left him.
Raymond was a truck driver for 56 years with the occasional vacation from driving, where he was a mechanic. He will be a very missed man.
