Lewis Raymond Stoncel

August 18, 1942 — December 22, 2020

ATHENS - Lewis Raymond “Ray” Stoncel, 78 of Athens, went to be with The Lord Tuesday, December 22, 2020 at his home surrounded by family. Born August 18, 1942 in Glouster, he was the son of the late Robert F. And Mary England Stoncel.

After graduating high school, Ray went to work in telecommunications for Norfolk Rail Road then later for Southern Ohio Coal Company from where he would retire. He had many passions and loved traveling the world. Much of his free time was spent watching football and westerns and he always loved to fish. Though he had his passion for his hobbies, he was first a family man who held his loved ones closest to his heart.
