Charles Ellis Allen Ray, Sr. was born June 2, 1936 in Austin, Texas. Charles attended the Austin Public School District during his early years. After attending public school as a young man, Charles ventures out and joined the United States Army. After his tours of duty with the Army he enlisted in the Army Reserve for an additional six years.

The City of Austin's Solid Waste Services department, from which he retired after many years of dedicated service, employed Charles. In his spare time, you could find Charles being a DJ at local events that earned him the stage name "Big Ray the DJ".

His daughter Claudia Waters preceded Charles in death.

Left to cherish his memory are his six children, Charles Ray, Jr., Charlie Ray, Patricia Ray, Carl Ray, Willie Ray, and Carlo Ray (Irene); and the mother Dorothy Ray. Charles also leaves behind thirty-six grandchildren and forty-one great grandchildren; his sisters Jessie Cannon (Thomas) and Bertha Jones (Robert); aunts Edna Johnson, Itaily Harris, Dora Walker all of Austin, and Lena Wayne of Compton, California.

He was a simple man who lived a simple life.
