Ray believed in hard work, fast deals, and good horses. His motto, "You can do it!" encouraged himself and others to believe in themselves, to take risks and to overcome challenges.

Survivors include the love of his life, Carol, Rapid City; his loving and adoring children, sons, Cal Fuss and his wife Twila, Missoula, MT, Larry Fuss and his wife Adelaide, Black Hawk, and Troy Helfenstein and his wife Theresa, Rapid City, 3 daughters, Carmen Fuss, Rapid City, Vickey Fuss, Phoenix, AZ, and Tami Christofferson and her husband, Brady, Rapid City; 2 brothers, Robert Fuss and Jerald Fuss, Redfield, SD, and 2 sisters, MaryAnn Sunderland, Outlook, WA, and his best friend, Lorraine VanAlstytne, Rapid City; 15 grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.
