Raymond “Ray” Charles Voss was born May 5, 1942 in Anoka, Minnesota to Vern and Clara (Schultz) Voss. He was raised with his seven siblings on farms in the Ogilvie area and graduated from Ogilvie High School in 1960. On June 8, 1963, Ray married Patricia (Seline) and they were blessed with two daughters, Terri and Karen. After 30 years of marriage, they divorced. Ray worked in both shipping and ballistics at Federal Cartridge for 36 years. In addition, Ray operated a beef cattle and crop farm. He enjoyed his land immensely: deer hunting, snowmobiling, four-wheeling, raising cattle and cutting wood. Ray loved visiting- especially with his EC’s (gas station) morning coffee friends, his Riverwood Village neighbors, his former classmates and coworkers, his family and anyone he happened to run in to. He liked classic cars, old-time country music, reading, Westerns, country drives, John Deere tractors, threshing shows and auctions (which resulted in him collecting way too much stuff!). Most of all, Ray was a proud, loving father and grandfather. He was a very special guy and will be dearly missed.
Ray is survived by his daughters, Terri (Patrick) Gerold and Karen Voss (Dan); brothers, Larry (Eileen), Bill (Sharon), Dennis (Rose) and Jerry (Peggy); sister, Judy (Steve) Taylor; sister-in-law, Carolyn; four grandchildren, Mitch (Amanda), Chase (Miranda), Tess (Mark) and Calli (Aaron); great-granddaughters, Clara and Willa; special friend Pat Larson; and by many other relatives and friends. Besides his parents he was preceded in death by two brothers, Henry and Clifford.
