Ray is married with four kids. His hobbies include reading, movies, fitness, sports, and following all of his kids’ activities. Ray works for UnityPoint Clinic. He has lived in West Des Moines for twenty years and has always considered the West Des Moines Library a crown jewel of the community. He is inspired to serve on the Library Board of Trustees because it allows him to support the mission of the Library and also give back to the city he loves. 

Ray says picking a favorite book is way too difficult, but will go with a modern classic – Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter.
