Ray graduated from Oconto Falls High School with the class of 1950 and served with the U.S. Army between 1953 and 1955. He was employed with Green Bay Correctional Institute retiring in 1997.

      Ray was a good natured, God-loving father and husband who always gave a kiss good bye and said "I love you". His greatest enjoyment was spending time with his family especially his kids and grandkids. In his earlier years, he was very active in football, basketball and band in high school. He loved bowling, hunting, fishing, walking in the woods and collected baseball hats and golf balls. Ray enjoyed yard work and cutting wood and was proud of his huge garden with raspberries and vegetables. Many precious hours were enjoyed out doors with his children learning the value of nature. He was a member of Wisconsin Law Enforcement Association and a member of Suamico United Methodist Church where he taught Sunday school, served as an usher, played dartball and sang in the choir for many years.

      He is survived by his wife Carolyn (Mattingly), whom he married on February 5, 1955 in Louisville KY; one son, Dennis (Pam), Sobieski; two daughters, Debra (Tom) Erdman, Pensaukee and Diane (David) Longsine, Abrams; grandchildren, Tyler, Rayanna and Jennifer Longsine; Rebekah and Jonathan Erdman.
