Ray Andrew Wymer I
April 08, 1972 ‒ November 02, 2016
Ray A. Wymer I, age 44 of Delaware, passed away Wednesday, November 2, 2016 at his home.
He was born on April 8, 1972 in Delaware to Peggy (Kean) Wymer and the late Harry J. Wymer Sr. who passed away earlier this year.
Ray was a former manager and delivery driver for Pizza Hut in Delaware. A collector of Elvis memorabilia, he loved the Christmas season and took delight in playing the role of Santa Clause at Christmas and Halloween. He was also insistent that photos of his children with Santa were a holiday tradition.
In addition to being an avid Buckeye fan, Ray was a man of many trades. He was a member of Delaware Christian Church and at one time had been active in both the Boy and Cub Scout programs of Troop and Pack 108. Described as goofy at times, he was caring and helpful to all.
He treasured time spent with his children, enjoying family vacations, or a good nap. Ray will be remembered for putting God and family first in his life.
In addition to his mother Peggy of Delaware, he is also survived by his children, Victoria (Dillon) Blakeman and Ray A. “Drew” Wymer II; brother, Harry “Jamie” Wymer Jr.; sister, Hope Miller; grandmother, Ruby (Hubbard) Wymer Helton; the mother of his children, Dawana Dunfee; nieces and nephews and extended family.
In addition to his father, he was also preceded in death by his grandparents Rev. B.R. and Esther (Laff) Kean and James Wymer, step-grandfather Everett Helton and a niece Ashley Wallace.
