He puts his teaching gifts to good work at Walnut Hill, where he occasionally preaches in Waterbury, coordinates Adult Sunday School classes and teaches Bible seminars.

Donna also fills in as house manager.
A true New Englander, Ray was born in Hartford, grew up in MA and CT, and now resides in North Branford, CT. He and Donna have five children, two grandsons and one granddaughter.
