He married Toni Marie Sorensen Oct. 16, 1980, in the Manti LDS Temple.
A member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Ray held many callings including stake mission with his wife, and in charge of technology equipment for 15 years. He loved serving the widows in town. In a time of need, he was always the first one there and the last to leave. His hobbies include making LED lights out of wood and glass.
Ray will be missed by many.
