Ray died Dec. 24, 2021.

He was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas, where both his parents were schoolteachers, and attended Alamo Heights High School before coming to Princeton. He majored in chemical engineering, played 150-pound football (middle linebacker), and was a member of Cottage Club.

After college, Ray earned an MBA from the University of Texas, Austin, and embarked on a successful career first in engineering, and then in private equity. A committed outdoorsman and adventurer, Ray had a private pilot’s license, loved travel, and enjoyed his time as a scoutmaster in the Boy Scouts, leading trips on campouts, backpacking, canoeing, and scuba diving. Moving back to San Antonio, he was an active member of the MacArthur Park Church of Christ.

Ray is survived by his wife, Marianne; his two sons, Benjamin and Ray III; his daughter-in-law Mary; sisters Donna Dove and Brenda Butler; and stepchildren Jonathan, Elizabeth, Michael, and Benjamin Warren. To Ray’s family and friends, the Class of 1982 extends heartfelt sympathy at their loss.
