It is with regret that I announce the passing of Ray Stumpf, or as he was known on the forum, stumpkin.

Ray passed on Sunday November 3rd in the early morning hours, surrounded by friends and family.

Obituary for Raymond A. Stumpf
Ray A. Stumpf was born on September 22, 1956 in Chicago, IL to (Kelly) Carroll and Charlene (Rivetts) Stumpf.
His family moved back to Little Falls when he was 3. He graduated from Little Falls Community High School in 1975.
After High School, he joined the Navy serving 10 years as a Hospital Corpsman including a tour with the Fleet Marine Force.
He then entered the Naval Reserves to continue his education and returned to active duty as an Engineers Aide/Underwater Construction Diver where he served another 10 years.
He retired from the Navy, with over 22 years of service. He was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal, and the Navy Achievement Medal.
While in the Navy, he met and married his wife, Barbara (Donald) Stumpf on August 15, 1981 at First United Methodist Church in Lancaster, PA.
Attending college throughout his naval career, Ray earned a M.S. in Education from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA.
After retiring from the Navy, he, his wife, Barb, and daughters, Naomi, and Joy moved back to Little Falls where he taught middle school Industrial Technology for 14 years.
Ray’s interests included most outdoor activities, swimming, bicycling, hobby cars, & sightseeing.
He enjoyed working with youth through church, Boy Scouts, coaching, and teaching.
He was a member of First Lutheran Church, Disabled American Veterans, Little Falls American Legion Post #46, Fleet Reserve Association, and the Lone Eagle Auto Club.
Ray is survived by his wife, Barb of 32 years; daughters, Naomi Janelle Stumpf and Noelle Joy Stumpf; siblings, David (Peggy) Stumpf, Carol Jo Stumpf, and John Stumpf (life partner, Jodi Davis); parents, Kelly and Char Stumpf all from Little Falls; many aunts and uncles.
Ray was preceded in death by his infant son, Noah Joshua Stumpf. Active Pallbearers will be David Stumpf, Matthew Stumpf, John Stumpf, Wayne Betty, Charles Ossont, Austin Frank and Jeff Lukasavitz. Honorary Pallbearers will be the U.S. Navy Sea Bee Underwater Construction Divers. Memorial request: In lieu of flowers & plants; to be split between: “His Hands & Feet” Scholarship Fund and the “Minnesota State Veterans Cemetery Art Project”

There is a picture that I am having trouble finding of Ray with myself, Stu, JohnWPB, Rix, and several others... I was hoping to paste it in here.

Edit: Ray's last post here was about giving all of his Fiero stuff to a good friend of his... http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum1/HTML/092694.html

I am glad I had the opportunity to meet Ray for the BBQ this summer at his place on Friday and on Saturday at the Tyler show. I am very sad I won't have that opportunity again...... Even though I only had a short time to talk with him, he is a soul I won't soon forget. Rest in Peace Ray.........

Many of us including myself, only briefly knew Ray, but the friendly hospitality of Ray and his family made an impact.

A few pics of some of the Friday caravan group hanging out at Ray's place on the way to Frazee for the Tyler Shipman Memorial Carshow, Ray is in the baseball cap in the 2nd pic.





Prayers go out for Ray's family.
If it is any support or comfort in times to come, you have gained some more Fiero family.

Wow...... sad new indeed. I am just so very happy that we took Ray up on his offer to stop by his house on our way to Frazee this year. He had offered the past few years, and we always just seem to busy to get to Frazee to stop. I was in the Thursday crowd, and got to meet Ray and his wife for the first time. In that short time, you could see what amazing people Ray and his wife Barb were.

Ray told us he was not sure if he would be up to going to the show, as he probably just would not have the strength. Early Saturday morning I was parking the cars to get them all lined up for the show, and was SOooo happy to see Ray and Barb pull up and ask where to park! Barb and I got to talking a bit off to the side about a lot of things.... My thoughts prayers are with you Barb.

Twenty years ago today I was diagnosed with cancer. Although very young to have prostate cancer, my doctors at Mayo Clinic assured me that I would be a perfect test subject for an experimental procedure using cryotherapy. After a very brief stint in the hospital I made a full recovery but in the back of my mind I have always lived with the fear of the possibility of the return of cancer. Five years ago this Friday I was diagnosed with stage 2 colon cancer. I didn't have a single symptom and yet here I was facing my mortality again. I have never smoked, never done drugs, never used alcohol to excess and yet for a second time I fell victim to one the biggest killers of men over 40. Ray and I discussed his situation at the Tyler Shipman show and we both concluded that you must live each day with the hope that today is only the first of many more great days to come but the wisdom that it may be your last. Over 50, go get tested. Got a family history of colon cancer, go get tested!

R. I. P. Ray, the pain is now over and your next chapter has begun.


Pax,

Dr. W.
