A graduate of California State University Long Beach, he began working for the California court system. In 1976, he began his career in California as a Special Agent for the US Secret Service. He relocated to the Washington, DC metro area and retired from the Secret Service Washington Field office in January, 1999. After his retirement Ray went to work for the US Agency for International Development and the Department of Homeland Security, Transportation Security Administration for a short period of time. He enjoyed residence in Chesapeake Beach, MD. Ray had an avid enthusiasm for dogs. He had a passion for attending dog shows to include the Westminster in NYC and had a life-long dream of training and owning a \"show dog\". Ray was a lover of music and also enjoyed reading, traveling, fine wines, and was a known \"gadget man\" due to his ownership of so many of them. Ray was also known for what the Bible refers to as a \"cheerful giver\". He was a known die-hard LA Lakers and Oakland Raiders fan. Ray is survived by beloved sibling: sister, Patricia Youman McGowan and her husband, Rick McGowan of Chino, CA, and a brother, Larry Youman and his wife, Annye Youman of Lynwood, CA, numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews, a host of other relatives and close friends who loved him dearly and will miss him greatly. A special thank you to Evelyn Walker and Wes Thomas for all their support and help throughout this difficult time. You have our love, appreciation and utmost gratitude. We love you Ray and look forward to the time when God\'s promise will be fulfilled at Rev 21:4 when death, sorrow and crying will be no more it will all have passed away and in the resurrection we will see you again.
