Obituary of Raymond Joseph Shorts

Surrounded by family and listening to his favorite music, Raymond J Shorts of Rockledge, FL passed away peacefully on May 17th, 2023.

Ray was known as the best husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and friend in the world! He always had a positive outlook, liked to sing/hum songs, and brightened up a room with a smile.

Ray was born in Rochester, NY and served in the Air Force from 1960 to 1964. While stationed in Texas, his love of horses began.

After the military, Ray returned to New York, graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology, raised a family, and had a career at Kodak.

Once retired, Ray lived life to the fullest traveling to 32 countries and playing as much golf as possible.

Ray was predeceased by his parents and siblings. He is survived by his loving wife, Joyce, his children; Debbie (Rick), Scott (Gina), and stepson Mike (Debbie).  He is also survived by his grandchildren, great-grand son, nieces, and a nephew.

A celebration of life will be held at the Viera East Residents Club on Saturday May 27th from 2 – 4:00.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Brevard Zoo/Aquarium.
