Ray was born February 2, 1957, in Roosevelt, Utah. He was the son of Floyd Eddie and Stella LaRene Ames. Ray married the love of his life Sandy McDonald on July 6, 1979 in Elko, Nevada. Celebrating 41 years together.
Ray's greatest joy in life was his family, he loved to pester and joke with them all. And hands down, if you ask any of the Grandkids who makes the best spaghetti, its “Grandpa Ray”.
Ray's most favorite thing to do was get his chainsaw out and head to the mountain to cut and haul wood. He loved being outside, from hunting, to fishing, camping or just being outside in his Yard and garden. His yard always looked perfect!
