Ray worked in the construction industry all his life. He enjoyed living on the lake cruising on his Pontoon boat. He loved country music and spending time with his grandchildren and taking them to Dairy Queen. But what he loved most was his wife, Barb. After being apart for 17 years, they will finally be reunited. In lieu of flowers, donation may be made to the Alzheimer's Association.
