Ray Edward DeLong, 78, of Antwerp,  passed away at the home of his son in Antwerp on Thursday, Aug. 20, 2020.

Ray was born in Antwerp on Dec. 22, 1941, a son of the late Ursie (Gorrell) and Clifford Virgil DeLong.

Ray served his country proudly in the U.S. Army and has served his community as Mayor of Antwerp since 2016 and served as such from 2008 to 2012. He retired from Spec-Temp Glass as the plant manger. Ray was a great father and grandfather and there was never any doubt that he was the Cleveland Indians greatest fan!

He was also preceded in death by his brother, Paul.
