Raymond Henry Schober, born March 15, 1927 in Baker, Kansas, outside of Hiawatha, and, passed on Oct.14, 2021 of natural causes. Ray was raised by Zelma and Ray Schober and recently suffered the loss of his brother, James R Schober.

He is survived by his nephew James H Schober, and niece Catherine L Conner, and her two sons, Elias Frazer and Derek Frazer. The genetic family would also like to recognize the 'local family' Ray had in Heber Springs, from neighbors to caretakers at medical facilities, and the staff at The Smokehouse who embraced him over the years.

A specific hug goes out to each of his good friends and caretakers Christie and Sheila. Ray moved to Heber Springs when he retired from Union Pacific Railroad after 44 years as a machinist building the trains that keep America moving. Ray was an avid collector of antique radios which he restored in his downtime as well as collections of other memorabilia from old ads to lunchboxes. He was buried with his family in Powhattan Cemetery in Kansas at 3 p.m. the afternoon of Oct 30. In lieu of flowers please help continue donating to one of his favorite charities including the Wounded Warrior Project, or the St. Labre Indian Catholic High School.
