Ray also played on the morning show on the local radio station in Rockland- WKRD. One of Ray’s great accomplishments was that he got to play at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, TN.

Ray also enjoyed entertaining the residents at the Knox Center where he played every Tuesday. Ray’s family said he was a very giving & sharing man, and was a “born entertainer”.
