Obituary for Raymond "Ray" Bentley Smith

Raymond "Ray" Bentley Smith, 90, went to be with the Lord the morning of April 16, 2018.

He was born to the late Frank and Jane Smith, July 3, 1927, in Coventry, Rhode Island.

Ray graduated from Coventry High School and went on to earn a Bachelor of Science from the University of Rhode Island. He served in the US Navy during WWII and Korean War. Ray worked for 25 years as a financial advisor for Merrill Lynch in Miami, Florida.

He married Priscilla Morison on March 12, 1955. Together they lived in Ohio,
New York, and Connecticut, before relocating to Miami, in 1963 to later retire in Peachtree City, Georgia in 1990. Together they enjoyed traveling. Some memorable trips include Switzerland and Alaska. After celebrating 56 wonderful years of marriage, Priscilla passed away in 2011.

Ray spent his life serving those around him including his family, church body, and
Community. He had an infectious smile and he loved making others smile with jokes and magic tricks. He was an active member of Grace Evangelical Church for 20 years.
