Ray passed peacefully at home on Whidbey Island with Lewy Body Dementia. He was raised in Seattle and attended Roosevelt High School.
He was a people person and people were drawn to him for his sense of humor, compassion and zest for living.
He was very creative; His beautiful and original jewelry designs were sought out by many. He gave generously to many charitable events.
Ray is survived by his wife Gwen of 35 years, his daughter Lisa Sunderland, Step- Daughters Kathy Fulmer and Krista Squibb and 10 Grandchildren.
A private celebration of life will be held later.
In lieu of flower, remembrances can be made to Hospice, Alzheimer’s association or a charity of your choice.
