Obituary for Raymond Clay Rasar

Ray was born to Robert and Myrtle Rasar on July 25, 1930 in Snoqualmie, Washington. He went home to the Lord on September 21, 2017. At the time of his passing he was at home, surrounded by God's presence and his family.

Ray grew up on a farm near Bow, WA and graduated from Burlington-Edison High School. Ray enrolled in Dakota Bible College in Arlington, South Dakota and achieved a Bachelors of Sacred Literature Degree.

While enrolled in college Ray met Evelyn Scoville. They committed themselves to each other and were married on June 6th 1953 in Arlington SD. Ray and Evelyn were married for 54 years and spent their lives in the Lord's work.

Ray had a busy life while going through Bible College. He went home to haul peas in the summer and worked in a cement mixing plant in Huron, SD while in school. Ray graduated college in 1955 and pastored churches in Wessington SD, Brandon IA, Stronghurst, IL, Bucklin and Scott City KS, and Sheridan OR. Due to health related issues he left full time ministry and worked as a custodian for Sheridan School District from 1986 to 1999.

Ray enjoyed caring for the grounds around his home outside of Sheridan as well as cutting and splitting many cords of wood for winter heating. He was always willing to help others in need. Ray is a member of Amity Christian Church and was active in the work of the Lord until he suffered a stroke in 2011, when he moved to Salem to live with family.

Ray was preceded in death by his parents, wife Evelyn, his brothers Robert, Earnest, Jim, and sister Betty Anderson. Ray is survived by sons Bill (Jodi) Rasar of Sheridan, Gene (Lori) Rasar of Salem, and daughter Lin Rasar of Newport. Ray has been blessed with six grandchildren and eight great grand-kids.
