Veal, Wafford Ray
Sunday, November 28, 2021
Wafford Ray Veal (Daddy, Pops, RayRay, Uncle Ray), a man who loved and was loved by so many, was welcomed into Heaven on November 26, 2021. Taken by a heart attack at 67, his heart is now beating its true rhythm in Glory. A longtime resident of Lookout Mtn., he never met a stranger and was always willing to lend a hand or a listening ear. He loved a good joke, a good game of chess, making music, sitting around the fire, and his family — especially his daughters and his grandsons. To all in his circle, we are sure he would say, “Glad you got to know me!”
He is preceded in death by his father, James Veal.
He will be lovingly remembered by those who survive him: daughters, Rachel Veal (Jason Craven) and Julie Stults (Colby); grandsons, Colby Stults, II and Deacon Stults; the mother of his children and friend, Julie Watson; his mother, Bernice Veal; and sisters, Connie Smitherman (Dean) and Robin Nordquist (Kim).
Funeral services will be held Sunday, Nov. 28 at 2 p.m. in the funeral home chapel, with Rev. Erttie Veal officiating. Online condolences may be shared at ryanfuneralhome.net.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donation toward funeral expenses.
The family will receive friends Sunday from noon until the funeral hour at Ryan Funeral Home & Crematory, Trenton.
