When around friends and family he was known as "PAPA, HONEY, UNCLE RAY, and the SILVER FOX for his beautiful hair." Ray was a stoic yet silent man whose presence was felt in a room, but when he did speak he was sure to make you laugh even through his silly jokes. His passions in life were caring for his roosters, maintaining and restoring cars, and his green thumb favoring hybrid orchids and anthuriums.
