Ray Drummond Obituary

Ray Drummond, all time greatest husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, uncle, friend and neighbor, found peace on August 5, 2018 after a stoic battle with pancreatic cancer.

Ray was born in Lyons, Nebraska, on May 11, 1949. After graduating high school in Tekamah, NE, he enlisted in the United States Air Force. He was in the Phillipines for two years and finished his eight years in the service at Beale AFB, where he was honorably dishcharged.

His creative genius led him to many professions including being a general contractor for 40+ years.

Ray met his wife, Vicki, in 1979, and they married in 1981. They raised their five children in Yuba City. Life was always an adventure with Ray. He was devoted to taking care of his family and friends. He built sailboats and a houseboat. He learned to play the banjo and stand up base so he could be in a band with his dear friends. He was in the process of converting a 40 ft. Prevost tour bus into a retirement travel home.

He leaves behind his wife Vicki; son, Mark of Yuba City; daughters, Janice and her husband Allen of Linda, Jennifer of Browns Valley, Karrie and her husband Tony of Yuba City and Dallas and her husband Eric of Yuba City; adopted daughter (granddaughter) Taylla; 16 grandchildren (who all adored him); two brothers, Steve of Marysville and Dale and his wife Marilyn of Yuba City and one sister Pam and her husband Dave of Nebraska.

He is preceded in death by his parents Harry and Jacque Drummond.

Ray's ashes will be spread in Fort Bragg, where he and Vicki started their wonderful journey together.

Ray's family will be hosting a celebration for all who loved him on August 26, 2018 at 1:00 pm at St. Andrew Presbyterian Church, 1390 Franklin Rd., Yuba City, CA 95993.
