Lynn Martin Ray
1952 ~ 2015
Lynn Martin Ray, beloved husband, father, and grandfather, returned back to the open arms of our Heavenly Father on December 31, 2015, after a valiant 12 year battle with cancer. He was surrounded by his family at the time of his passing.
Lynn was born on July 17, 1952, to Leonard and Beth Ray in Salt Lake City, Utah, the second of 2 sons. After graduating from West High School, he married his sweetheart, Judith Lucille Moss in the LDS Temple in Salt Lake City, Utah in 1972.
Together, they were blessed with 4 children: Marty Ray (Vicki), Jamie Ballesteros (Joe), Jason Ray (Maggie), and Shellie Webb (Cody). After 30 years together, Judy passed from this life, and he later met and married his 2nd sweetheart, Marianne Porter (Ray) in 2003, and added two more step sons to his family: Ben Porter (Marti) and Adam Porter (Kirsten).
Lynn was a committed father who focused on his children and grandchildren, supporting them in all of their varying interests, endeavors, and activities, from music and dance recitals, to sporting events, school activities and scouting projects. As a faithful member of the LDS church, he served in many callings in the Primary, Elders Quorum, and Special Events Committee. He also had a love of music, especially of singing in the Ward choir, impersonating Elvis, and playing the accordion.
Lynn is survived by his wife: Marianne, older brother Garn Ray, his 4 children and 2 step children, and 14 grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his parents, and his 1st wife Judy.
