Ray received his bachelor's degree in physics from East Central University and his Master in Education from his beloved University of Oklahoma. A lifelong educator and coach, Ray retired from the Oklahoma School System as a school superintendent in Shidler. He continued to stay in touch with his teachers and students, meeting monthly with the Paoli Hug Pugs, the first students he ever taught.

Retirement didn't slow Ray down, and his ties to OU remained strong. Since the 1940s, Ray cheered the OU football team. Upon moving to Norman, he added men's and women's basketball teams to his season tickets. He and Dorothy loved to travel and loved RVing. He also loved golf and played well into his 80s. A religious man, Ray attended First Baptist Church of Noble and lovingly served the Lord as a deacon and Sunday school teacher.
Mr. Stuckey passed away October 20, 2012. He is buried at Wetumka Cemtery in Wetumka, OK.
