OBITUARY ~ RAY LEE CREVELING

On November 13, 1989 God blessed the world with Ray Lee CREVELING. At six foot two with a size eleven shoe, Ray was still the family's little boy. One never saw Ray without a big mischievious smile on and a good joke to tell. Ray's favorite expression to say for all occasions was "Git'r Done!" At chore time Ray always said to Mom, "Don't worry, it's be aight."

Along with a big tall boy came an even bigger heart. Ray had many passions, including NASCAR racing (as long as it was an Earnhartdt 3 or 8), Dodge trucks (especially Dad's), and playing sports of all kinds. Ray lived to ride four-wheelers and construct anything imaginable with his frineds, his latest project being "The Cabin on the Bluff" he built with his special group of friends, complete with air conditioning and anything else they could pilfer from the farm. Other passions and hobbies included eating three McDonald's cheeseburgers for lunch, having two candy bars and two pops for dinner, hunting and teasing his pets, Fatty and Nash.

Ray was a professional racer when he was strapped in his TV chair playing NASCAR Thunder on Playstation 2. Dale Earnhardt (Ray) always finished first and Jeff Gordon always wrecked. Ray's favorite place to play Playstation and hang out was at Uncle Kevin's and Aunt Tammy's with his cousin, Nathan, who was like a brother.

Above all, the biggest place in Ray's heart was the love for his family. In that love was a special place for Grandpa Lee, whom Ray was named after, and Grandma Donella, who was always up to the challenge of feeding Ray his favorite chicken and noodles and pumpkin pie.

With Mom's love and guidance, she and Dad, along with Grandpa and Grandma ROSSOW, were the proudest when Ray was confirmed into the Lutheran Church this summer.

Ray was called home to be with the Lord on September 10, 2004 and will be sadly missed by his parents, Ronnie and Denice, siblings Tim, Dara, Cari and the rest of his family and friends.

Ray will always have a special place in the heart of every life that he touched, for he never met a stranger.

Ray will forever be in our hearts.

Funeral services were conducted at the First Lutheran Church in Mount Ayr, Iowa, on Tuesday, September 14, 2004 at 10:30 a.m. with Rev. Gary JAECKLE officiating. Musicians were Nancy SACKETT, Mary DAVENPORT and Margaret BICKERS.

Casketbearers were Nathan CREVELING, Brock STILL, Cody LAME, Jeff STARLIN, Tyler HOSFIELD, Landon JOBE, Mitchell GILLILAND, Jeffrey DOOLITTLE, Nathan HEAD, Tyler WHITSON, Tyler CAMPBELL and Adam JACKSON.

Honorary pallbearers were all of Ray's friends whom were close to him both on and off the playing field.

Ray was laid to rest at the Ellston Cemetery in Ellston, Iowa.
