Ray was born in Oklahoma City, OK on March 6, 1946. He attended Putnam City Schools. He volunteered for the US Navy serving from December 1964-1968. In 1969, Ray’s father believed in him so much that he gave him all the money he had, which was $1,000, for Ray to start his carpet business. Ray grew it into a very successful business and just reached his 50th anniversary in business this month. Ray lived life to the fullest and was passionate about everything he did. He loved the morning coffee shop with friends, collecting guns, riding motorcycles, watching the stock market, and talking about the Bible. More than anything, he loved being with his friends and family. He loved to joke with the grandkids, pick on the great-nieces and nephews, and they loved him for it. Ray was a rock in the family and has blessed us with a legacy for which we are truly grateful.
A private family graveside service was held at the Yukon Cemetery, followed by a Celebration of Life service on Monday, December 2nd at Trinity Baptist Church, 620 N. Cemetery Rd., Yukon, OK.
