Birth on February 17, 1966, was not just the start of a new year, but a brand new chapter in the household of Gilbert and Esther Jackson of Bastrop, Louisiana after a nine year hiatus. Ray Louis Jackson, an adorable baby boy, with a head full of hair, was born in Bastrop, Louisiana. He was one of six children. Two of his sisters, Bobbie Jean Thomas and Debra Marie White, as well as his father, preceded him in death.
Ray leaves to cherish his legacy, his wife of nearly 30 years, Glenda Jackson; three sons: Ray, Jr., Ramsey, and Ryan; his dear mother-in-love, Corine Adams of Monroe, Louisiana, and his siblings: Gilbert Williams (Deborah) of Domino, Texas, Clifton Jackson (Mamie) of Monroe, Louisiana, and Michael Jackson of Bastrop, Louisiana; from his union, sisters-in-law, Vickie Williams (Roy) of Monroe, Louisiana, Kathy Sims (Ronald), of Atlanta, Georgia, and Lefeta Henson (Keith) of Cypress, Texas, brothers-in-law, Kimmey Adams of Monroe, Louisiana, and Albert Adams (Jocelyn) of Forney, Texas. He will be greatly missed by his goddaughter, Lauren Hawkins, and a host of nieces, nephews, other loving relatives, and his closest friends.
