Grandpa, I cannot express how much we love you. When we think of you, we think of your zest for life, your soft and gentle heart, and your love for Jesus and for your family. You always held compassion and you were bold when you needed to be. Thank you for loving us with all of your being, and for showing us what marriage was designed to be. The way you looked at Grandma and the way she looked at you was a blessing to watch. Grandpa, When I think of your laugh, I can’t help but smile. There is nothing like it. Oh What I would do for a signature bear hug from you right now. We miss and love you So very much. Love always, Melissa (Punky) Chad, Raelyn, Aliana, Caleb, and Kevin

Grandpa, I love and miss you so much. I will miss coming to your house so you can give me comics and menards ads one at a time. I really miss playing on your phone doing fireworks with you. I miss most of all whenever I wanted to, you would give me a ride through the woods on the ATV and we would both say ''wahoo'' as we rode around. I Miss your hugs and kisses, how you always made sure I knew how much you loved me too. ~love Raechel

Samantha Self
Grandpa, Thank you for all of the memories, the love, and the wisdom that you shared with us. You never failed to bring a smile to my face, or to make me laugh when you told your funny stories. The way you seized life was inspirational. Not only did you do and experience the things you wanted, but Christ was at the center of it all. I am so proud to be your granddaughter. You’ve shown your children, your children’s children, and now your grandchildren’s children how to love, and be loved. I will always be grateful for that. Missing you.

All my thoughts and prayers to Ray's family. He was the man that God intended him to be.

Katlin Shaffer
Ray was a like a second grandpa to us. I will never forget the stories and memories he shared with us; his faith has brought me closer to God and he will be forever missed. Even though he's gone, he will always hold a special place in my heart. Can't wait to see you again someday brother Ray ❤

Donna Rieckmann
Pat and daughters, I am so happy that I got to know Ray through the Ravenna Legion. It was always fun to talk with him and of course have a laugh or two. Pat you and the family are in my thoughts. Donna

Brenda Norton
Ray is a great example of what a father, husband, grandfather should be. Always putting God first. Thanking you for being that example, your testimony will be with everyone you knew.

Sarah VanderLaan
Grandpa, I am so sad that you are no longer here with us to share in our laughter and watch us grow, but I know you are watching us from above. I thank you for the role model you have been to me. I am so glad that I was able to look up to you as a dad, celebrate Father's Day with you, and that you were able to give me away on my wedding day. What a wonderful example you have been as the head of our family unit demonstrating good character, integrity, faith, loyalty, and so much more. You have been there watching and praying over our family over the years for healing and protection. I thank you for the example you have led. I want you to know you mean the world to me. You have always been there for me, your words of wisdom and comfort will always be held and cherished. You meant so much to so many people, but I got to call you grandpa. Love Always, Your Favorite Sarah Grandpa Faithful Always: 2 Timothy 4:7, NLT: "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful."

Ken & Marti ONeil
We are saddened by the passing of Ray. We always enjoyed his music when we attended Christ Temple. We pray God will give you His comfort and peace.

John n Kathy Morris
He will be greatly missed! But we know we will see him again.

Cathy Julien
I just cannot put into words how broken hearted I felt hearing the news that the Lord had called you home. To say I am blessed to know you is an understatement. I will never forget your smile, your hugs, your heart for God, always selflessly requesting prayers for others while you silently suffered yourself with health issues. Your notebook you kept with ALL our names in it keeping track of progress of answered prayers, testifying and giving God the glory when they were answered. You are an inspiration to us all. I love you like a dad and will miss you terribly! Until we meet again in heaven......❤️ -Cathy

We were so sorry to hear about Ray's passing through the church's Facebook page. We are sending prayers and our love for the family as they are going through these tough times and recoveries.

Ray was such a steadfast strong pillar of the church and he will be greatly missed by all that he came in contact with. Kristy and I will continue to pray for the family with the hole that has been left behind by Ray.

Ray was such a light. You could tell that he had a great love for God and his family and he always had a smile to share. He will be greatly missed.

David and Patricia Crowell
We have lost a faithful prayer warrior. We will surely miss Brother Weller. We can remember talking at the back of the church and how Brother Ray would want to be a blessing to Haiti, he would ask what he and Sister Pat could do Special for the teachers to help them teach. Always had a word of encouragement and a heart for revival... so thankful Ray has been a part of our lives. Love and Prayer, Crowells
