He also enjoyed the shooting sports as a member of the Sheffield Rod and Gun Trap Team and shooting at the Kalbus Club. Ray was also a member of the Sheffield and Clarendon VFWs, and the Eagles Club. He liked a good game of cards, traveling with his wife, and spending time with his family and many friends.

He attended the Praise Fellowship, and the Church on the Rock in Lakewood, NY. Ray is survived by his wife, Lou M. Anderson Nordin, whom he married on February 14, 1998; two sisters, Dana Hamby and husband Ralph of Dubois, PA, and Nora Shaw of Phoenix, AZ; children, Jodi Carter, JoAnne Olander, John, Jillette, and Jordan Crowl; twelve grandchildren; three great grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.
