Ray loved fishing and hunting. He was definitely and outdoors person. You could call him and ask if the wanted to go riding the dirt roads and he would drop everything and be waiting on you. He also loved kids. He could find a way to make those kids laugh and they never forgot him. Ray loved pulling pranks and telling jokes and he could come up with off the wall stuff and get tickled at himself. He loved to embarrass you too. If he knew he was embarrassing you he would really get stirred up and start laughing.

Pallbearers will be; Mike Oswalt, Wesley Oswalt, Cody Fondren, Joel Thacker, Colin Smith, Howard Pelfrey, Jesse Thacker, and Hayden Garner.
