Ray was born September 22, 1935, one of six children, to John Henry and Vera Aline Ramsey Taylor in Glen Rose. He served with distinction in the United States Navy and received his discharge after four years of honorable service. Ray made his career with Santa Fe Railway and retired after 42 dedicated years.
