Ray was born May 17, 1933 to Peter and Lilly (Panschow) Maassen in Alma, WI on the home farm. Ray graduated from Alma High School in 1951. He was a wonderful musician, playing guitar and accordion by ear. After working at LaCrosse Milling for a while, he joined the Army in June 1955. In 1959 he began working at Monroe, in Winona, MN until his retirement in 1995. When he was stationed in Germany in 1956, he met the wonderful woman who would later become his wife. They were married on November 8, 1958. They made their home in the Buffalo City-Cochrane area. Ray had many hobbies, including hunting, fishing, camping, archery playing cribbage with the grandkids and woodworking. His greatest passion was spending time with family. One could always find him in his garden or out in his workshop, where he would make gifts for his family all the time.
