Ray was my ex-brother-in-law and was a great person and friend. I grew up with him and he loved his entire family and circle of friends, which was very large and constant, more than himself by long ways. He was one of the most unselfish people I knew, and I will miss him as will all those that knew him. Condolences to my ex-sister in law, his loving wife, Sherri Fitzpatrick, and his daughter Kara, and his son, Levi.

I love you guys. Shannon

I am so sorry for your terrible loss. This is an especially difficult time to find comfort from anywhere. I hope you find comfort in what Our Creator promises. He promises we will soon see our loved ones again in the restored paradise earth. Please try to find a little time to consider the warm thoughts for you from the God of all comfort at Isaiah 25:8, 9; Acts 24:15 and Revelation 21:3, 4.

Sheri and Kids,
So sorry that this is late but we did not know. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Sheri if you need help please let us know as we would be proud to help at this time. Whena good man passes before his time you know that he had a calling to help in the after life. Please know he will watch over you and the kids and he will surround you with love as always.
