Raymond ‘Ray’ Ayala was born on November 8th, 1972, to his loving Parents Ray and Lita Ayala. He was raised alongside his sisters Charlene, Ginger, and Crystal in Huntington Beach. As a young man, Ray was very passionate about sports and played for Huntington Beach High School. He was known to be a massive fan of The Los Angeles Dodgers, and Oakland Raiders. Ray was a hard and dedicated worker, who first started his career in Injection Molding alongside his father. He had great passion for the industry and would love to tell his family and friends about the projects that he would be working on. He took great pride in his work and would talk to anyone who asked about it. Ray had many passions in life, but there was nothing in this world that he was more passionate about than his daughter. Julianne Nicole Ayala was born on April 12, 2007, and Ray’s life would never be the same. His love for her was so strong that it radiated and filled the room whenever you were around him. Ray was a force of nature, determined to provide for Julianne and give her the life he felt she deserved. Ray was well known to be the best person behind the grill. His dream was to one day open a BBQ restaurant. He enjoyed listening to oldies, while drinking a cold beer, and being surrounded by his loved ones, telling jokes and sharing stories. As a loyal Dodger fan, he always enjoyed going to Dodger games with his daughter. He had a long-standing tradition of eating at The Pantry before every Dodger game, as he used to as a child with his parents, and now his daughter. Ray recently moved back to California from Texas to be closer to his daughter and mother. He was excited to be able to spend more time with them. Ray was a man who loved deeply and the world is a different place without him. He will be forever missed. Ray is predeceased by his father Ray Ayala. He is survived by his mother Lita, daughter Julianne, and sisters Charlene, Ginger, and Crystal.
