Ray loved sports, especially the OU Sooners and OKC Thunder. Ray’s grandsons, Xander and Abel, held a special place in his heart; he loved spending time with them. He never met a stranger, always traveling and meeting new people. He enjoyed being in his pool league, pro wrestling, classic cars, motorcycles, and collecting hot wheels.
