Raymond D. “Ray” McCoy, 69, of Dover, passed away peacefully in his home with his family at his side on December 26, 2019 following a courageous battle with cancer.

Born in Dover on July 27, 1950, he was the son of the late Frank and Rose M. (Lorenzoni) Wenger.

After graduating from New Philadelphia High School in 1968, he worked throughout his professional career in various factories.

On November 27, 1978, Ray married the former Irene M. Grasselli. Together, they enjoyed repurposing furniture and were avid drag racing fans attending races throughout Ohio and Tennessee. They were also members of Grace Lutheran Church in Dover.

Ray is survived by Irene; his son, Troy (fiancé, Jennifer Barron) Huff; his granddaughter, Laura Huff; his aunt, Helen (Darryl) VonLehmden; and numerous cousins and extended family.

Ray, We miss you! Your family, especially Irene, misses you. We miss your trips to North Carolina. We know how much you enjoyed: 1) talking to other people; 2) your home and all the work involved; 3) your repurposing of used furniture for others to enjoy; 4) your dogs and the friendship they provided; and in particular 5) your love for Irene. We pray that God has taken you to a better place. Love Aunt Helen and Uncle Darryl
