Ray served four years in the Air Force in the 686th out of Roswell, NM, and made lifelong friends. He loved attending the reunions every year and keeping in touch with the guys. 

He opened Thrasher Dental Laboratory in Madison, TN, and worked there until retirement. 

He loved tinkering with and restoring old gasoline engines and collecting rusty treasures. He told the best stories. He loved his family and friends and never met a stranger. He loved to laugh and eat good food, (which was plentiful thanks to Linda).

Born March 20, 1938, he was the son of the late Mary McCulley.

In addition to his mother, Ray is preceded in death by a sister, Joyce McCulley. 

Survivors include his wife and love of his life, Linda; two children, Dana and Thomas (Melissa); and two grandchildren, Blake and Riley.

Special thanks to Dr. Gibson, Dr. Bounds, and Nurse Lisa at St. Thomas Midtown Medical Group and to Tim and staff at Pharmacy Care of TN for their care and kindness throughout the years.
