Ray Charles Barrall



June 10, 1943 – August 1, 2023

It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of Ray Charles Barrall of Mesa, AZ on Tuesday, August 1, 2023, at the age of 80 years.

Ray was born in Allentown, Pennsylvania, son of the late Royce and Elizabeth (Everett) Barrall. After graduating from William Allen High School, Ray enlisted in the United States Air Force in Corvallis, OR, entering tech school as an electrician. After his honorable discharge he returned to Allentown, PA serving his community as a member of the Cetronia Ambulance Corp. and as a Deputy Sheriff.

A salesman by nature, Ray connected with many and built long lasting friendships in business and personal. Ray will be dearly missed by his long-time friends and neighbors in Allentown, those he worked with in Las Vegas, NV at the Clark County School District and Higley Unified School District in AZ where he was a Special Education bus driver.

Ray is survived by his wife of 59 years, Carol Ann, his children, Deanna Glener and her husband Richard, Darrin Barrall and his wife, Elliot; his grandchildren Ryan and Brayden Glener.

Funeral services and interment of ashes will be held privately in Allentown, PA.
