Raymond J. “Ray “ Nutty, of Mishawaka, Indiana, passed away on March 6, 2015, at St. Joseph Hospital surrounded by family and friends. Ray was born and raised in Brookville, Indiana to Harold and Mary Louise Nutty (who preceded him in death).

Ray is also survived by his grandchildren whom he loved so deeply, Kylie Tulledge and Alex Brown.

Ray was a 1964 graduate of Indiana University, Bloomington with a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting. He served in the Army Reserves from 1964-1968.  As the thirteenth Partner hired by Crowe Chizek and Company in 1964, Ray spent his entire career as a CPA with the firm, retiring from Crowe Horwath in April of 2003.

Ray enjoyed sports, both as participant and a fan.  He wrestled, played football, baseball, was a lifeguard and fisherman and a huge IU basketball fan.  An avid golfer, he was proud of his 10 handicap and played several times a week. He was a member of Morris Park Country Club for over 36 years, serving on the board (2002-2005). In 2004, Ray became a member of the Cliffs Community - The Valley course, located in Travelers Rest, SC, where he and his wife shared a second home and many friends.

 Ray had ease at making lifelong friends.  He was known for his integrity, great sense of humor, the ability to give sound advice and tell a good story. He was a true gentleman and someone his family and friends could always count on!

We are so sad to hear about Ray's passing. He was always such a friendly and open person so easy to talk with and to share thoughts together. He will be missed here in the Valley where he was well known and respected by those who touched him and Monica.

May he rest in peace.

To the family of Ray Nutty;

My name is Mel Bruns and I was a childhood friend of Ray's as we grew up in Brookville. Ray and I were part of the "valley rats," a fond name for those of us who lived in the valley of the beautiful town. I have many fond memories of playing basketball games at Ray's house with other guys from the valley. And of many bike expeditions and late Saturday night get-togethers. He was a great friend and a fine person.

I had been out of town for several weeks and did not learn of his passing until this past weekend. It was a shock. I last saw him at our fiftieth high school reunion five years ago and was struck at what good physical shape he was in. He really looked physically well and healthy. I apologize for sending this so late after his passing, but I just was informed of it. So sorry for your lose.
