Obituary for Ray Montez Reyes

Ray Montez Reyes, 74, of Big Lake went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, December 4, 2018, in Midland, TX. Ray was born October 13, 1944, in Mertzon, Texas to Jose and Juliana Montez Reyes. Ray grew up in Big Lake and attended school there. At a young age he began selling groceries for a local store and eventually would own his own grocery store. He would go on to open his own Texaco Gas Station but would close this store and go to work in the oilfield. Ray worked for numerous oil field companies driving a truck over the years but 12 years ago started Ray Reyes Trucking Company where he worked until recently. Ray married Gloria Arroyo Reyes on December 9, 1978 in Big Lake, Texas, and they shared 42 beautiful years together. Ray was a loving husband, father and grandfather who devoted his life to his family. He was a very hard working and reserved gentleman, who also had a very strong faith in the Lord. In his spare time, he was a Crucillista and enjoyed being at home with his family. His work ethic and strength in God was only surpassed by his love for his family. Ray will remain in our hearts forever and we will dearly miss him. He was preceded in death by his parents. Ray is survived by his wife, Gloria Reyes, of Big Lake; his children, Jessie D. Reyes, of Big Lake, Cynthia Aguilar, of Big Lake, Melissa Perez and her husband Guadalupe, of San Angelo, Rodolfo Guerrero and his wife Myriam, of El Paso, Juan Guerrero and his wife Gloria, of Big Lake and Ray Reyes and his wife Jessica, of San Antonio; 15 grandchildren, 14 great grandchildren; his sisters, Ruth Benedict, of Georgia, Delia Martinez, of Big Lake, Elva Reyes of Big Lake, and Debbie Reyes, of Big Lake; and numerous nieces and nephews, other family members and close friends.
