While residing in Lordstown, he was an active member of Bailey Road Baptist Church, where he served as a deacon, trustee and Awana leader. Upon his retirement in 2009, he and Betty moved to Mesa, Arizona, where he was a member of Calvary Baptist Church serving as a deacon.
Ray enjoyed wood working, remodeling and repair work for himself and others. He was known for his sense of humor and kindness. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and friend to many.
