Ray was born and raised on a farm, and continued to farm throughout his life. He had particular interest in horses and beef cattle. He rodeoed for many years participating mainly in calf roping and team roping.
He worked several jobs to support the farm habit. During his early adult life, he worked as a machinist and welder at USU Research Foundation. Following this, he started his own excavation business in which he worked extensively on many, many homes and businesses in Cache Valley and surrounding area.
Later on, Ray drove school bus for Cache County, and particularly enjoyed transporting special needs students to and from school.
