The staff and board of Drug Free Clubs of America and more importantly, the Wheeling teens who become members are all better people for having known Ray. He was an avid supporter and made a difference in many young lives through his commitment to the youth in his community. Both he and Connie will be remembered and missed.

Thank you for sharing your light.

We were so very saddened to hear of Ray and Connie’s passing. Ray was one of my very 1st childhood friends, and I have fond memories of all the time we spent at “the ballfield” and on the Johnson porch. Even though life took us in different directions, every time I saw Ray in Wheeling, we always shared an old story of some times past. He and Connie were super people and will be missed. Our sympathy to the entire Johnson Families. John and Alia
