If you knew Ray, you would remember him as a hard worker and one whom would always be ready to offer a hand to someone in need. He loved gardening, telling jokes whether funny or not. He often considered himself the frustrated mechanic. Ray always had a love for animals, especially his dog, CoCo, she was his companion for many years.
