He loved continuing family traditions with Randy and discussing sports they played together and watched as brothers (1 year and 1 day apart).  His deceased brother, Rich, gave him a niece, Kristin Becker (Neal) and made him a Great Uncle to Landon and Zoe. Through marriage Ray enjoyed his wife's loving family: Brother-in-law, Wes (Tonja) and his first niece, Heather (Dave) and great uncle to Adam and Alexis; Sister-in-law, Terry Ellis, Niece, Kristin (Neal), Great Uncle to Landon and Zoe; Sister-in-law, Mary (Ken); Niece Laura (Joe), great nephew, Evan; Nephew Timothy; Nephew Matthew (Ashley) great nieces Sophia and Everly.
