          Victor Ray was born in 1957 in Lynwood, California.  Spending much of his early years on the West Coast, Victor received his BA in Communications/Public Relations at California State University, Fullerton, and theological studies with the Old Catholic community of St. Mathews.
         Victor's career includes over 30 years of dedication and hard work in the field of Electronics and Wire and Cable Distribution where he rose to the ranks of upper management in his early 30's.
         The career milestones he earned on this journey include being the Western Regional Sales Director in Scottsdale, Arizona, and Purchasing Director in New Berlin, Wisconsin.  He also held the position of Assistant Vice-President Regional Sales for Newark Electronics for 15 years in Los Angeles, California.
         Accelerating quickly in his career, Victor retired as the US Regional Director at Industrial Electric Wire and Cable in Milwaukee on December 31, 2012 and served there for 15 years.  As an employee-owner, his duties include overseeing the US, Canada, Mexico and Corporate Accounts.

Victor joined Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish, a Jesuit Parish and served as President of the Council of Our Lady of Guadalupe and St. Patrick's in Milwaukee for several years.
         Highly motivated to make a difference in his community, Fr. Victor soon became a resident volunteer in the Near South Side Area Planning, served as a Committee member for the South Side National Night Out, got involved with his Neighborhood Watch Program and soon became a regular face at the District 2 police meeting for concerned neighbors.
         Fr. Victor is a founding member of the Walker's Point Association and serving as a Director, and President, registering the Association as a 501C3, non-profit organization.
