He joined the U.S. Army in 1956 where he was stationed in Germany and Beirut and honorably discharged in 1958. After returning he married the former Marilyn Ann Crosier on July 7, 1959, making their home in Lyndon. He found employment at the Fairbanks Foundry for 14 years and also during that time until 1972, he did maintenance for the South Wheelock Church, worked for the Town of Lyndon and later for True Temper in the early 70’s. In 1972 the family moved to Nashua and later Litchfield, NH where Ray worked Triangle Pacific Cabinet Corporation.

Over the years he was a member of the Lyndon Corner Grange, worked on and donated at many Red Cross blood drives and was a Deacon in at the S. Wheelock Church. He built his home in Lyndon after retiring in 1997, enjoyed camping, fishing and hunting and loved desserts!
