Ray was a devout Christian and a longstanding member of the Parsippany Baptist church.
An accomplished accordionist, he was an active member of the Denville String Band. He
lived his life cheerfully and had a smile and strong handshake for everyone he met. He
was a longtime employee at Reliance Picture Frame in Dover, NJ.
Ray leaves nieces Andrea (Carter) Rogers and Leianne Carter, nephews Grant Carter and
Daniel Carter, numerous cousins of the Donnelly family (NJ), as well as the many friends
whose lives he touched. He will be sadly missed by close friends Tom Bell and John
Welsh with whom he spent many pleasant hours "railroading."
No services are planned at this time. Donations can be made in his name to the Denville
String Band and the Parsippany Baptist Church. Arrangements are under the direction of Newbaker Funeral Home, 200 Route 94, Blairstown, NJ 07825.
