Early Accomplishments

Ray was straight. In the early 50's, he tied the knot with Eileen Williams Robinson. However, their union unfortunately fell apart within a year. By the mid-50's he gave marriage another try as he moved on to Della Beatrice Howard. Their union lasted for a whopping 22 years before they eventually got a divorce.
