It has come to our attention that Ray passed away two years ago.
His official obituary noted that Edward Ray Estes of Winterville, Georgia, died on Monday, April 21, 2008, after an extended illness. He was preceded in death by his parents, Reedus Ray and Patricia Mumm Estes of Winterville, Georgia.
He is survived by his daughter, Erin Estes Broholm of Nashville, Tennessee, who was pregnant with her first child at the time of his death.
More details about Ray's life would be appreciated.
