Kevin M. Ray


KERRVILLE, Texas — Kevin M. Ray, 58, of Kerrville, peacefully passed to go home on Tuesday, May 21, 2013, after bravely fighting cancer for 2½ years.

Kevin was born May 2, 1955, in Munster, Germany. He was the son of George Edward Ray and Mildred Lou Salb.

Kevin was an avid high school and professional football and NASCAR fan. He was loved by everyone who knew him, and he never knew a stranger; all were his friends.
