Ray loved hot rodding, boating, skiing, motorcycle riding, and spending time with his many family members and friends. He expressed his many talents through his hard work and also the many beautiful cars he built from the ground up. Among the many builds over the years, he was most proud of his Red Pro Street 1970 step side with a chop top, suicide doors, Grand AM wrap around seats, and blown big block Chevy.
He won many trophies and awards to show for his labor of hard work.
Ray was met at Heaven's door by his son, Patrick Mohr; great grandson, Acestyn James Butterfus – Ramirez; his parents, Joe and Suzie; five brothers; and three sisters.
