Clarence Ray Vann, 64, of Ponce De Leon, Florida passed away on August 13, 2018. Ray was a loving husband, an amazing dad, a fun Papaw, and an overall wonderful man. He served our country as an Army Master Gunner for 20 years and served as a hero to all those that admired him. Ray would always find his peace in the serenity of the woods, watching the currents of the river, or seeing what would grow in his garden. Although Ray was the strong and silent type, the inspiration of his strength will help ease our pain and fill our hearts with the incredible joy he felt for life. Long live his beautiful soul that comes down and through and onto all of us.

Ray is survived by his loving wife Theresa Vann, brother, Donnie Vann (spouse:Brenda), brother, Alan Vann (spouse: Cindy), sister, Patricia Hall (spouse:John). His children Shari Campbell, Tamatha Vann-Lalima. Grandchildren Alissa Myers, Tristen Rushlow, Eliza LaLima. Great Grandchild Colton Myers, stepchildren Robbie Tarpley (spouse: Carolyn), Shelley Terry, step grandchildren Jaxon, Ruby, Kurtis Odom, Tiffany Odom, and Payton Terry.

Ray was greeted in heaven by his parents, Raymond Vann, Dorothy Jo Bess, along with his daughter Staci Moody.

Family, friends, and all those whose lives Ray touched were invited to his celebration of life at the Amvets Post #178, 4776 US Highway 90, DeFuniak Springs, Florida 32433, Saturday, August 25, 2018 and 12:00pm with military honors by the United States Army.
