Ray was a devout Catholic and parishioner of Holy Cross Catholic Church in Lafayette. He recently attended the ACTS retreat and cherished his time there. Ray often volunteered for Meals on Wheels. He loved cooking, fishing, and working in the garage. Ray enjoyed boiling crawfish every year for their annual crawfish boil, where he served hundreds of pounds of crawfish. Above all, Ray was a family man and anyone he met was instantly family to him, he was there for everyone in their time of need. He was beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend, who will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
