He was honorably discharged 1952, shortly thereafter he married the love of his life, Fritzie, in 1953. Ray and Fritzie spent the majority of their lives in Tipp City, Ohio where Ray retired from Tippecanoe School District and was an active member of St. Johns Catholic Church. Ray and Fritzie moved to Johnstown, PA in 1995 where he enjoyed his retirement gardening, spending time in the woods and working in his wood shop. You would have always found Ray leading the Rosary at St. Michaels Catholic Church where he was also an active member.
