Ray left behind many friends who will miss him. He was involved in skeet and sporting clays shooting for more than 50 years, being top in his class for many years. During this time, he served on the Board of Directors of the Fredericksburg Rod and Gun Club, serving as president for several years and as skeet chairman. He also served as president of the Virginia Skeet Shooting Association and was well respected throughout the skeet community, as was shown by his induction into the Virginia Skeet Shooting Hall of Fame. He served as Virginia’s National Director for several years and was also involved in sporting clays in more recent years. Ray loved to fish and hunt, especially bird hunting in Iowa and Wisconsin with his friends.
The staff and members of NSSA-NSCA extend their condolences to Ray’s wife Judy, his daughter and other relatives.
