Ray Leslie Tettleton was born January 7, 1938 in Edmond to James Quinton and Annie Eliza (Thomas) Tettleton. He left his earthly home August 27, 2021 to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Ray was employed for 37 years at the U.S. Postal Service. Upon retirement he spent another 17 years as the janitor for the Jones Post Office. Ray was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and was loved by his family and friends.
Ray helped raise four of his stepchildren, teaching them in sports, how to ride a motorcycle, school projects and FFA. He always had an ear to hear and a lending hand to offer. Christian guidance was his motto. Ray was a very hard worker, for others and for himself.
Ray was preceded in death by his parents, James and Annie Tettleton; brother, James Paul Tettleton; twin sisters, Thelma and Velma Tettleton, sisters, Joyce (Tettleton) Adams, Jim-a-Lu (Tettleton) Tompkins; and his stepson, Franky Hurley.

We will always have many wonderful memories to cherish until Jesus returns or calls us home.
