Clinton Matthew Ray (“Ray Ray”) 1965—2004
Ray Ray loved life. He was a Native Alaskan of the Inupiak (Eskimo) tribe; a Christian; a gourmet trained chef who loved to cook. He was a gentle spirit who studied martial arts in Alaska.
A friend says, “Clinton, I will always remember you and your lovely eyes. We used to picnic together and I enjoyed those times. You taught me how to do acrostics and gave me a recipe for salmon with a sauce to go on top of it. You had a strong spirit, a strong Christian faith, a warrior spirit, and you were a ‘survivor.’ In the end, times got too tough for you, I think.”
