Obituary: Richard Dorland Ray (June 23, 1947 – April 11, 2016)

Read more... Richard Dorland Ray “Mushy” was born June 23, 1947 at the hospital in McMinnville, Oregon and passed away at Willamette Valley Medical Center, also in McMinnville, on April 11, 2016 after being ill for a short time with cancer.

Mushy Ray lived in Willamina, Oregon most of his life before moving from Crescent City, where he lived with his parents. He learned how to drive big trucks at an early age, being tutored by his uncle Bob Smith (referring to Richard as “Dick” then) who drove off road log trucks with Mushy and was right in the truck with him. After he was old enough to get his commercial driver’s license Mushy branched out on his own, driving for many logging businesses in the West Valley area. He wrecked a few in his younger, more invincible years, but ended up being a driver who could drive just about anything, including being able to back up trailers hooked to his truck.
