Raymond Marcial Cruz passed away on August 31, 2019, at the age of 19, following a 3-year battle with Ewing’s Like Sarcoma Cancer.
Ray was born in Las Vegas, Nevada on April 30, 2000, to parents, Blandina Vergara-Cruz and Raymond Antonio Cruz. He’s a son and a brother. He is a singer, musician, and man of God. He is a constant bright light to those that knew him.
He proudly served his community by always doing his very best to help others and to share his story, in hopes to make a difference in the world. One thing Ray always shared was that “You can’t choose what happens to you, but you can choose how to respond.”
After Ray was diagnosed with bone cancer in January of 2017, he rarely lost his spirit. Even when being re-diagnosed a third time, he continued to keep his positive spirit, strong faith and giving heart.
Ray’s memory will forever be cherished by his parents, Blandina and Raymond, his brother Ryan, sisters Kasondra and Riley, and grandmothers Alma and Ricarda, as well as many cousins, aunts, uncles, and friends.
