Obituary for Ray McNamer

Ray McNamer, age 69, passed away in Crescent City, surrounded by his family on Saturday, October 27, 2018. He was born on August 28, 1949 in Vancouver, Washington to Fred and Josephine (Haines) McNamer. Ray moved to Del Norte County with his family at the age of 8 years old. He graduated from Del Norte High School with the Class of 1967.

Ray remained in Del Norte County working as a bank clerk at United California Bank as well as a waiter at the Ship Ashore Restaurant. In November of 1977, Ray began his career as a gas station attendant (he would later become Assistant Manager and then Manager) at the Exxon Gas Station on the corner of Cooper and HWY 101. During his 18 years there he made lifelong friendships and connections including that fateful day his path crossed with the love of his life, Pauline Peepe. Ray and Pauline were married on June 11, 1983 and along with Ray’s 5 year old daughter, Pamela they took up residence in Gasquet, California.

At the age of 49, Ray received his AA Degree from College of the Redwoods. For the last 15 years, Ray has worked at the Fred Meyer Fuel Center in Brookings, Oregon.

When Ray was not working, he spent time with his family and friends. He loved attending professional football games in San Francisco and he was especially happy when his beloved Rams were playing. He also enjoyed bowling on a Thursday night league for almost 25 years.

Ray is survived by his wife of 35 years, Pauline McNamer, his daughter Pamela (George) Wilder, his 4 grandchildren: Elizabeth, Alexander, Benjamin, and Morgan, 2 brothers: Terry (Joyce) McNamer and Randy McNamer, 2 sisters in law: Saffett Brackmann and Suzanne Peepe, his lifelong friends Tracy and Louie Martin, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Ray’s name may be made to the Wounded Warrior Project or the American Cancer Society.
