Raymon "Ray" Lewis Critser

August 6, 1932 — August 17, 2022

“Ray” Raymon Lewis Critser, 90, of Pocatello, Idaho passed away on August 17, 2022, at his home after a brief illness, with his sons by his side. Ray was born to John Thurman and Edith Critser in Bergholz, Ohio on August 6, 1932. Ray grew up in Bergholz and Dover, Ohio where he attended schools and college.  He also served in the Army during the Korean War.

Ray married Wendy Ann Critser August 20, 1972. They moved from Ohio to Idaho in 1976 to work for Bucyrus Erie. He had just crossed the Idaho border when the radio announced the Teton Dam had burst. Ray worked for BE, Kraft and retired from the INL. Ray was an industrial engineer, mechanic, machinist and worked in maintenance. His favorite job may have been driving part time for Wells Fargo Armored Services as he was allowed to wear a handgun to work. Ray loved to hunt, ride his Harley and was a talented gunsmith.
