Donald Ray, 82, passed away January 19, 2017. He was born in South Weymouth, Massachusetts on November 9, 1934 to the late Stanley and Marion Ray.



From a young age, Donald loved cars - building, racing, fixing, competing- it was his passion. He won numerous trophies and prizes for racing and other car competitions.



Donald's passion became his career. Donald entered the workforce as a master mechanic, eventually retiring from Goodyear after many years.



Donald also loved his family. Some of his family's fondest memories are simple times spent together listening to music (he loved Santana and the Rascals) and also watching airplanes come and go at small airports.



Cherishing his memory are his daughters, Elaine Herrick and Amber Ray; grandson Timothy Mitchell Jr., and many beloved friends.
