    Always liked Ray ( knew him back when we all called him Elvin ). Will continue to keep family in prayer for your comfort and peace in the days ahead.

    Sincere sympathy to the Younces, with whom we spent many wonderful family times together. My Grandpa Darby loved Jerry! My family went to Doyle’s college to get him for a family emergency, and I got lost in their cornfields! Graduated with E Ray and Joanie and send hugs to all. Love, Jane Ann (SHAW) Sarber, Winter Haven FL.

    My sincere condolences to each of you. I grew up down the road from Elvin Ray, great times together always laughing and joking around, Will remember the awesome times at church camp and the time we tried to sneak out of the tents at night, we girls got caught but the guys planned their escape well, they stayed up in the lodge all night eating and playing games.
    RIH dear friend.

    Love and prayers for E. Ray’s family. So many of my fondest memories include him with twelve years in school and fun times in youth group. He was a caring person with a delightful sense of humor. Rest in peace, my friend.

    We knew Ray through the booster club in Warsaw. He helped my daughter, Diane, get a job at Lake City Bank when she returned home after college. We had so much fun with him. I am so glad he was able to enjoy his life after he left here. We missed him. Our best wishes to his children and to Barry.
