I first met Ray when I was 15 while working at Wood’n Wheel. Years later we reconnected at SoHi Campground and had an immediate bond. My family instantly became bigger when I met Ray’s family. Ray was the sweetest, kindest and most caring person. He would give you the shirt off his back and would help anyone in need. My heart hurts knowing he’s no longer here, but he lives on in each of us. My thoughts and prayers to his family and friends.
Ray, you called me your campground wife, and it was an honor to call you my campground husband. I love you and will hold our memories close to my heart. Remember, 3! Until we meet again, rest easy my friend. xoxo
Our condolences to Ray's family. He was a good man and we will miss him. I just saw him with one of his sons at Stewarts and had the pleasure to have a brief conversation with him. Rest In Peace my friend. 🙏🏻
