Ray and Goldie became friends to me when I really needed a friend and have remained so for many years. Ray and I shared so many good memories through our trips and adventures together right down to our conversations at Bass Pro Shops during Ray's last active days. The one memory of Ray that I will most cherish will be his amazing ability to walk up to a total stranger and share his faith. If he were to be introduced to the President of the United States, Ray's first question would be "Are you saved?" I'll be seeing you buddy! Prayers, thoughts, and love to Goldie and family.

Dear Salisbury Family, My heart goes out to you as you lay your dear one to rest. I know that Ray has gone through so much prior to his home going, as well as the whole family. He now is pain and worry free, resting alongside his Master. Please know that I am so grieved for you all. I know you will miss him greatly! I always remember Mr. Salisbury being so kind to me. He actually made me a cutting board for my wedding and I used it for years!! I always thought about him whenever I used it. Please know that I am praying for your comfort as you go through this time. Love and prayers to you all! Joyce Carpenter Ward

My brother Ray was highly respected in very situation and job he ever had. We were not close physically once I left home, but enjoyed enjoy our fellowship once we got together. He and I loved shootingand teasing our younger brother Karl. He lovedhis country and was one of the most patriotic persons I have ever met. He joined the Marines and I the Air Force. As a gift from God we both served time together in Okinawa. The greatest gift Ray left to us is his love for family and others and his love for God. Always ministering to the needs of others and his dedicated service to his church. God was always first in his life .along with. his family. Only by the Grace of God did he endure more than nine years after having a severe stroke! Actually the medical staff had come to pull the plug because he was comatose. a long time when he suddenly woke up! A tremendose miracle from God and the prayers of his family and friends. A gentle man and a Bible Scholar. Missed but blessed being with his Lord and Savior!
