went to be with his Lord on  October 7, 2019 after a short battle with cancer. He was predeceased by his father, Arthur Lee Osteen and mother,  Ruth Rowland Osteen, as well as sisters, Donna Charlier and Patricia Dougher Scott.  He is survived by his best friend and wife of 46 years, Doris Osteen, and their five children, Joyce Rogers, James Heaman, Virginia Kozak, Carol Hamm and Christopher Osteen, and Ray's sister Sandra Kaminsky, as well as many grandchildren and great-grandchildren who he loved so very much and his faithful companion Rosie.
