Longtime Moses Lake resident Ray Groff passed away on Dec. 1, 2018. He was born in Oklahoma, with his family finally settling in Boise Valley, where he met and married the love of his life, Agnes Phelps. They celebrated 70 years of marriage this past September. They raised two sons and one daughter here in Moses Lake.

Ray worked for United Concrete Company in Moses Lake, and was a major player in installing concrete pipe for the vast irrigation project in the Columbia Basin.

He is survived by his wife Agnes Groff; daughter DeAnna Groff; son Roger Groff and his wife Connie; grandchildren Terra Wheeler (Brian), Trae Groff, Kara Fisher (Jerome), Heather Pearson, Christopher Groff and Tiffany Groff as well as 11 great-grandchildren, and two great-great-granddaughters.
