James Ray Losey, age 86, of Walton, KY, passed away Saturday, August 24, 2019, at his residence. He was a retired mechanic for Ryan Implement Company and Northern Kentucky Tractor Sales, a member at First Baptist Church in Walton, KY, and a U.S. Army Veteran. Ray was an excellent welder and enjoyed “tinkering” on projects. Many people around Walton knew if they were looking for a part or help with a project, Ray was their guy.
