He was employed as a manager with Bridgeport Auto Parts and also was a salesman with Dorr Auto Parts in Saginaw. Ray had a technical mind and understood the complexity of taking things apart and putting them back together. A backyard mechanic by trade, Ray could fix anything, from snowmobiles and motorcycles to cars and pickup trucks, if you needed something fixed, and fixed right, he was your man. In his spare time, he enjoyed bowling and deer hunting. His little piece of heaven was attending NASCAR races, as well as watching them on television. Ray also supported his favorite sports teams, the Detroit Tigers and Pistons. He will forever be remembered fondly as "Red" a nickname given to him by his family, for wrenching and tinkering in his garage, the special affection he had for dogs, and for the love he had for his children and grandchildren, especially attending all their sporting events.
