Dead Of Death

Insightful article last year in the Dallas Observer about how Crazy Ray had fallen on hard times is here.

Edit: To be clear, there is an actual passing.

I wish the Cowboys had taken better care of him. I hope he has a special plaque or statue at the new stadium. Shame on Extreme Makeover for not seeing the real need here. God bless you Crazy Ray!

My first thought was HFJC, Ray died.

But then I read on.

Apparently he is still among us. I hope so.

I just think he is the epitome of "A place for every person-thing, every person-thing in it's place", or something like that.

Well, I'd say the Cowboys popularity has just about died, along with Crazy Ray. Now we'll be left with nothing but stories of Cowboys getting in wrecks with their fancy cars while "high" on something, how many babies they've had without being married, and other spoiled brat stories.

I never "got" Crazy Ray, but it's always nice to see someone as enthusiastic about something as he was the Cowboys. Hate to see anyone like that come onto as hard a time as he's having

He made nothing from the COWBOYS, but made the 70's, 80's and 90's a special highlight film. GOD BLESS CRAZY RAY and his antics, thank you.

Notice how the comments have stalled since the rise of the MODERATION NAZI!

My dad had season tickets in the 70's so I saw him all the time...and I actually met once at my grandad's truckstop where the Diamond Shamrock and J&J Country Store is now. I was pumping gas while visiting one weekend and he was a customer. I recognized him immediately and we talked Cowboys while I filled his tank. He seemed like a nice man.

I too wish the Cowboys had taken care of him.

I also wish the Cowboys had taken care of him. It was a highlite at every game for him to make it to our isle.

With all the walking he did, I am surprised that he had heart problems.

I wish he would have taken Rowdy with him.
