Born to Asa and Cornelia Sevy in Rosston Oklahoma, Ray was the youngest of three children. He was twelve years old when the family moved to Idaho to the small town of Houston.
Ray served our Country during World War Two as a member of the US Army's 23rd Artillery Division. He earned the rank of Sergeant during his service and was offered the rank of Sergeant Major if he would re-enlist. Ray chose to return home, he once said he "Swam all the way to Japan via Australia." He also said during most Thanksgivings while making the mashed potatoes, that he learned how to peel potatoes in the army, but we know he did much more than that.
When Ray came home to Idaho, he earned his living in the farming community in the Wilder area, as well as ran and surveyed for his own Land Leveling business.
On July 3 of 1952 Ray married the love of his life, Marciel Goebel. The couple remained happily married for 63 years until Ray's passing.
Ray enjoyed the outdoors, fishing and snowmobiling. Later in life Ray enjoyed going to the Greenleaf cafe to have coffee in the mornings, he was a regular customer at the cafe.
Ray is survived by his wife of 63 years Macriel Goebel Sevy, his daughter from a previous marriage Rene Chandler, two grandsons, one granddaughter as well as several great grandchildren. In addition to these children Ray had numerous nieces and nephews who all loved and respected him. Uncle Ray was dearly loved by all and will be deeply missed.
In lieu of sending flowers, the family has requested that donations be made to Greenleaf Friends Academy in Ray's name.
