Ray Moss was born Dec. 7, 1934 in Ray, to Orville and Opal Mae (Moore) Moss. He left this world on Saturday, Dec. 24, 2011, from Tahlequah.
Ray lived the first few years of his life in Wagoner. His family later moved to Lost City, where he met the prettiest little girl he had ever seen. This pretty little girl, Yvonne (Bonnie) Morgan, became the love of his life and his wife. Ray and Bonnie spent their 57 years of marriage in the Lost City Community.
Ray managed Western Hills Riding Stables in Sequoyah State Park for many years. He later worked throughout the park until his retirement. He and Bonnie also ran a dairy for 12 years. Although Ray had several jobs, being a horse trader was his passion. He enjoyed riding horses, whether leading a trail ride, herding cattle, or just riding with neighbors and friends.
He liked to hang out at the coffee shop, trading stories with other local coffee drinkers. He always looked forward to going to the Tahlequah Sale Barn every Saturday morning.
Ray loved the Sunday and holiday dinners with his family. While raising his daughters brought him great joy, his grandchildren brought him even greater joy, but his great–granddaughters brought him the greatest joy of all.
Ray is preceded in death by both parents, and sister, Lillie Mae Potts.
He is survived by his loving wife, Bonnie of the home; daughters, Sherry Daniels and husband Raymond of Lost City, Fran Ridenhour and husband Teddy of Lost City, and Twila Coles and husband David of Peggs; grandchildren, Kair Ridenhour of Tahlequah, Carla Coles Gritts and husband Jesse of Shady Grove, Ashlea Ridenhour Cochran and husband Chuck of Lost City, Dusty Coles and Rusty Daniels of Lost City; great-granddaughters, Charlea and Raylea Cochran; brothers, Orville "Cobb" Moss and Jimmy Earl "Pete" Moss and wife Ruby of Lost City; sister, Mamie Lou Squyers, of Ozark, Mo., as well as many other friends and loved ones.
