He was a great family man and he enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. Ray enjoyed playing cards, games, golf, crossword puzzles, and cheering on his grandchildren. Ray was an avid University of Michigan and Detroit Tigers fan, and a lifetime believer that the Detroit Lions would make it to the Super Bowl!

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
