Raymond “Ray” W. Williams, age 73, of Green Valley, AZ passed away on October 26, 2022. Preceded in death by parents Sam and Doris Williams; and siblings, Buzzy, Ronnie, Gilbert, and Larky.

Ray was greeted at the heavenly gates by Hooch, Bucky, Goliath, and his other cherished pets.

Ray will be remembered for his quick wit and true love of an adventure. Happiest in the driver seat, traveling at a whim, visiting loved ones, hitting the best fishing holes, taking the long way there and the short way home. His love and appreciation for animals and nature was ever present.

Services will be held at the Veterans Memorial Cemetery at Marana on Monday, November 14, 2022, at 10:00 AM. Please send donations to Animal League of Green Valley, AZ in lieu of flowers.

It is a new year and we are trying to be happy. But we miss you, my love. But I am grateful for the time that we had and I am glad that you are no longer sick and in pain. I hope you are loving on Kitty, Bucky, Hooch, and Goliath. Life goes on down here and we are learning to adjust and will be okay. But we miss the sound of your laughter, and your loving touch. RIP my love, until we meet again.

Ray was like an older brother to me when I was growing up in Crescent City, Calif. I can’t remember when he wasn’t around. He was a kind and compassionate guy and will be sorely missed. Heaven gained another angel..

Ray was Randy's (Raymond Doyle) best friend through school. He became like family, my 4th. son. We moved from Calif. and lost track of Ray but our paths crossed again years later in Fairbanks, Alaska. So glad we had the opportunity to catch up and a pleasure to get to know him again, the same nice guy. He is missed, so sorry he is gone.

Ray was one of a kind. There will be a Ray-shaped hole on this earth that will never be filled. My condolences to all who are, and always will be, missing this man.

Steve and I are are so sorry for your loss. Ray was a cool guy and we had fun hanging out with you guys. Steve really had fun riding the hills in the dune buggy with Ray. We love you.

Ray was a dear to work with back in the day. And more importantly, he was dear to his wife Cathy, my friend of over 40 years. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him. We loved him well.

Ray was a very good friend and we grew up together. And together we learned about life and work and adventure and travel and girls. Sometimes we were saints and sometimes we were not. But we got through those pesky teenage years relatively unscathed. People often say this country is not the same country I grew up in. With his passing it is even less so. May God be with him as he begins his new adventure.

I am sad to hear of Ray’s passing. While I didn’t know him well I do know that he made you very happy. I’m glad you got to spend the years he had left with him. God bless.
