Ray grew up in Montana, and while in the Air Force was stationed all over the United States, including Texas, California, Alaska and Georgia. After the Air Force, he worked as a civilian at Edwards Air Force Base in California, then started a career with Sears Roebuck as an electronics and appliance repairman, store manager and traveling catalog store supervisor.
