Ray was a devoted follower of Jesus through his entire life; he was a man of integrity and faith.  He was a longstanding and faithful Church member, most recently at the Listowel Baptist Church.  Ray attended Ryerson Polytechnical Institute, studying Business Administration.  Upon his graduation in 1972 he worked along with his father at Allan Johnston Limited Milk Transport by starting as a truck driver.  Upon his father’s passing in 1979, Ray took over as President of the family business.  Even in his retirement, milk transport was in his heart and he would always keep up to date on the local dairy industry.
