Ray Dumas

April 16, 1938 — July 17, 2013

Ray T. Dumas went peacefully to be one of God's Angels, Wednesday, July 17, 2013 at his daughter and son-in-law's house, with his loved ones by his side.

Ray was born on April 16, 1938, in Murray, Utah, to Herbert Harold Dumas and LoVina Comfort (Peart) Dumas.

In May, 1955, Ray joined the Navy and served his country until April, 1959. Following his military service, Ray became a Truck Driver.

From Ray's first marriage he had two children, Ray T Johnson and Tudy Hutcheson, both from Utah. In 1966, Ray married the love of his life, Terry Carter. From this marriage they had eight children, Wayne Dumas, Janet Daniels, Garry Dumas, Darrell Dumas, Neda Dumas, Tina (Tim) Whited. Sam (Anna) Jones, and Debbie Jones.

Ray drove truck in Wyoming hauling water to the oil rigs until moving back to Idaho. Then he worked at the Orchard and the Sod farm until he retired.

Ray loved to camp, hunt, fish and pick on everyone. He was a big prankster, but his real love was his family. He was a very loving man and his kids, grand-kids, and great-grand kids all knew how deep his love was for them. Everyone that met him, liked him and he never knew a stranger.

Ray looked forward to Sundays because he always went to lunch with his good friends, Raymond and Candy, then would go to his daughter and son-in-law's house to visit. He would stay for hours to help Tim with whatever project he was working on. He had a very special friendship with Tim.

Ray is survived by all but one of his children; 32 grandchildren; 23 great-grandchildren; several nephews and nieces; brother, Dell; and sister, Bly Rassmussen.
He was preceded in death by his parents; grandmother, Georgia Yenny; daughter, Debbie Jones; and mother-in-law, Nina Draper.

Special thanks go out to the nurses at Visions Hospice Care for being so wonderful with our father.

A memorial service has been scheduled for 11:00 am, Saturday, July 27, 2013 at Farmer Funeral Chapel in Buhl, Idaho.
