Ray married for the last time, in the year 2000, to Catherine and they doted on each other for 20 marvelous years.

He joined Catherine in the choir, and they married 1 year to the date of their first meeting. They came to Rockwell in 2016 when Catherine was called to Pastor Ursinus United Church of Christ, where she serves today.
