Ray Allen Heinrich arrived in heaven on January 25, 2023, at age 68.

He was born November 1, 1954, in Bluffton, Ohio. He was preceded in death by his parents, Carl Herman Heinrich (1909-1993) and Nellie Christena Shenk Heinrich (1914-1985).

In his early years he resided on a farm outside of Lafayette, Ohio between Ada, and Lima. Ray attended Lafayette schools and later Allen East Schools. He attended Lafayette Congregational Christian Church. Ray worked with his father who owned H & R Services and provided minor repairs including carpentry, electrical, plumbing, and other repairs. Ray was also employed as a fine carpenter and made decorative items and furniture. Later, Ray worked in the construction industry. In the last decade Ray was known as “The Preacher” on the streets with the homeless community. Ray loved Jesus and read the Bible frequently.

Ray is survived by one son, Brian Williams, who lives in Indiana and his sister, Catherine Wood (Dennis) who resides in Sunbury, Ohio. Ray also had three nephews and one niece and ten grand nieces and nephews.

A private grave-side funeral will be held for the immediate family at Shawnee Cemetery.
