He was born in Warsaw, Indiana to the late Ralph and Violet (Hull) Oyler. He was a longtime member of St. John's United Presbyterian Church in New Albany and was a member of the Masonic Lodge. Ray was a graduate of Purdue University and a Boilermaker through and through. He was an Eagle Scout and went on to serve in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. His passion for playing the trumpet will always be remembered by his family and friends.
Survivors include his wife Joyce Faber Oyler; daughter Cynthia Campbell: sons, Stephen and Scott Oyler (Karyn); brother, Robert Lee Oyler (Delores); his grandchildren Christina Turner (Matthew), Melissa Sprigler (Thaddeus) and Lindsey Oyler; his great-granddaughter Adyson Sprigler with another on the way.
He was preceded in death by his parents and first wife Nell (Jenkins) Oyler.

In the decades that I have known Ray, I can only consider him as a kind, gentle man. Ray's passing is a loss for this world, but I wish happy memories for Joyce, Cindy, Steve, Scott and their families.
I trust that you will understand that I am not with you as I am visiting granddaughter and family.

Joyce: lots of good memories and one memorable Sunday after church when Ray and I shared our hip replacement stories and you called us the 'hip' group! Lovely man. Chin up and point forward.

Love, Amy
