Mr. Hyde passed away Saturday March 14, 2020.

He was born April 28, 1963 in Norman, the oldest of three children born to Curtis Hyde Sr. and Helen Fern (Rice) Hyde. He was raised primarily in Norman and graduated from Noble High School in 1981.

Ray worked a variety of jobs throughout the years. He worked for his dad in the family wrecker service business and also at their service station some. He worked as a Sales Associate for Walmart for a little more than 12 years until recently starting at McDonalds.

When he wasn’t working, Ray loved hanging out with his friends, watching movies and attending concerts. He was a gifted musician; a great guitar player and he never missed an opportunity to go fishing. He was a wonderful son, brother, the best uncle and a good friend, and will be dearly missed!
