Following his retirement, Ray worked at Marty’s as a bartender and cook until his passing.

Ray had accepted Christ as his Savior at an early age.

He was an avid St. Louis Cardinals fan, and enjoyed going to the horse track. He was a skilled woodworker and made many beautiful pieces throughout the years. Ray took great pride in his yard and landscaping. He often would joke about how he “manicured his yard instead of mowing it.” Spending time with family and friends was something that Ray truly cherished.

Ray was a loving father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, and uncle, and was a caring friend.

A Celebration of Ray’s Life will be held 5-7 p.m., Tuesday, July 25 at Allee-Holman-Howe Funeral Home, Camdenton. Memorial donations may be made to the donor’s choice.
