He was an avid fan of NASCAR, loved fishing, hunting, genealogy, railroad steam engines, his dogs, exploring through the woods on his property, playing cards, music and emailing jokes with friends and family all around the country, loved to argue about anything 'cause he knew all the right answers', but mostly he loved his grandsons.

Uncle Ray, you believed in me and you were so proud of me for reaching for the stars & moving to Virginia to become a teacher! Thank you for driving my "stuff" there in 2001, as I began my new life as a teacher. Uncle Ray, you've had me in stitches as you say what's on your mind even if it's crotchety! I always jazzed ya back and I think you liked that. I've been praying for you to pass peacefully without fear and God answered my prayer. I hope to see you again someday and please give Granny a hug for me! Love you!!!!!
