Raymond "Ray" W. Zink beloved husband of Edna Mae (nee Bryant) Zink; loving father of Raymond J. (Rita) Zink and Randy R. (Donna) Zink; cherished grandpa of Sharon, Chad, Robin, Aaron, Ryan and Bethaney; great grandpa of Christopher, Grayson, Garrett and Hallie. He was preceded in death by his parents, Carl and Agnes (nee Coneal) Zink; and his brothers, Carl and George Zink. Passed away Sunday April 1, 2018. Age 100. Residence Pleasant Plain. Ray served in the US Army during WWII. He was a truck driver for Shippers Express. His first granddaughter fell in love with drawing thanks to her grandfather. To her, Grandpa Zink's flip book animations were filled with the same magic as Walt Disney, and she wanted to create some of that same magic. So, with pencil and sketchbook in hand, Sharon would go outside and find some of that magic in the country around her. She would draw the trees, the birds, the creeks, and the rolling hills. And while she didn't know if her drawings had the same kind of magic that Grandpa Zink's had, she certainly felt it when she made them. Visitation will be held at the Evans Funeral Home, 1944 St Rt 28, Goshen on Wednesday April 4th from 1:00 PM until time of funeral service at 2:00 PM at the funeral home. Burial with military honors will follow at Graceland Memorial Gardens in Milford, OH.
