Ray graduated from Point High School. He married his other half, Wanda McKee, and they had 3 children, Ricky, Eddie and Jana. Ray worked in the oil and gas industry, most notably as a supervisor for Shell where he worked for 40 years. He enjoyed the simple things in life such as playing 42 with friends and going on trail rides. Ray retired to Mineola, Texas where he enjoyed meeting his friends for coffee at the Dairy Queen and faithfully spending time with his church family at the Broadstreet Church of Christ, and later the Mineola Church of Christ. After Wanda passed away, Ray found love again and spent a few years married to the late Dottie Shepherd.
