Ray Colas of Manassas, VA, passed away on Tuesday, August 15, 2017. Ray is survived by his loving wife of 61 years, Marty, and their 3 sons, Greg, Tim, and Todd; his two sisters, Barbara Rager and Patricia Oviatt.
Ray was preceded in death by his parents, Rev. Raymond and Esther Colas, his oldest son, Marvin Colas, and his brother Rev. Ralph Colas.

Ray’s distinguished and accomplished career as an IBM Engineer spanned over 30 years. After his retirement, Ray and Marty loved to travel to the beach, and Ray pursued his passions for golf, woodworking, hunting, and fishing. Ray was an insatiable reader, and he and Marty frequently made visits to the local library with stacks of novels.

Ray was affectionately known as “Pop” to his 11 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. Pop took extreme pride in each member of his large family and closely followed the endeavors and life paths of each. He adored their visits always greeting each with a big hug and kind word. During his life, Pop was well-known for doting on and spoiling his numerous pets, especially his most recent dog “Jessie.”

Ray was a very kind man and a friend to all who knew him, and he was a true loving and faithful husband to Marty during their very blessed 61 year marriage.
