Ray adored his grandchildren and loved spending time with them. They would bake cookies, make gingerbread houses every Christmas, build toys out of wood, give BB gun shooting lessons, visit local parks, and take day trips.
He also loved working on his property. Ray built their family home, raised cattle, and had a love for building model trains and wood-working. His life was all about family and friends, hiking, camping, and ocean beaches. Ray was very generous and would do anything for anyone in need at the drop of a hat.
