Ray was born in New Haven, son of the late Frank and Margaret Spinelli Funaro. Ray was a devoted husband, a loving father and cherished cousin, uncle and friend. He loved the outdoors, nature, and fishing. An electrician by trade, Ray retired from Amtrak where he helped improve the infrastructure for trains in the Northeast corridor.
