WULFENSTEIN, RAY  
RAY WULFENSTEIN Joseph Raymond "Ray" Wulfenstein, 79, made his final lap around this earthly life Jan. 13, 2017, to join his beloved bride, Irene, at the finish line. He was born Oct. 8, 1937, to Velma Ruth Edwards Wulfenstein Hall and James Elroy Wulfenstein, in St. George, Utah. He moved to Lakeside, Ore., at the age of 10 and then to Las Vegas at the age of 15, where he graduated from Las Vegas High School in 1956. Ray married his sweetheart, Irene Dorothy Eriksson Aug. 2, 1957, in the St. George LDS Temple. Together, they raised four children and became the grandparents of 15 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. The "Stormin' Mormon," as he was referred to in his years of racing cars, was constantly on the go and always working on a project. As a young man, Ray worked as a painting contractor in Las Vegas before moving to Pahrump in 1972. It was in Las Vegas where he began paving the road toward his dream of developing the small town and establishing a name for himself. Ray worked day and night and with the support of his wife, he built a successful real estate business and construction company. Ray loved and supported the community of Pahrump, but his heart was always on the Oregon Coast. Ray and his family spent many summers vacationing in Oregon, where he welcomed family, friends, acquaintances and even strangers to join him for a good time. Whether it was a heart-stopping ride in his jeep on the Oregon dunes, getting flipped around on a water tube as he expertly steered his boat, or being served up a deep-fried meal cooked by the man himself, he made sure everyone was eating well and having fun. Ray was preceded in death by his beautiful bride, Irene; his parents; and his siblings. He is survived by his children, James (Terri) Wulfenstein, Cynthia (Michael) Colucci, Steven Wulfenstein and Judith (Douglas) Maughan; as well as his grandchildren, Bryan (Suzie) Wulfenstein, Brittany (Christopher) Jacoby, Michelle (Andy) Rimer, Michael (Sara Coleman) Colucci, Amy (Mark) Carter, Jill Wulfenstein, Joey Colucci, Lisa (Jud) Holtan, Rachel Maughan, Sara (Jantzen) Bowles, Katie (Beau) Condie, Bradley Wulfenstein, Scott Maughan, Sabrina Maughan and Tristan Maughan; and 10 great-grandchildren, Olive, Poppy, and Townes Jacoby, Koltyn and Bryce Rimer, Jace, Cade, Trey and Emri Wulfenstein, and Gracie Irene Carter. Visitation will begin at 11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 21, with service following at 1:30 p.m., both at the LDS Church, 921 E. Wilson (corner of Wilson and West Streets).

FOLKS Jr., CASEY  
CASEY FOLKS JR. Casey Eugene Folks, Jr., 72, of Las Vegas, passed away peacefully the morning of Jan. 12, 2017. Born Sept. 1, 1944, in California, Casey lived nearly his entire life in Las Vegas, where he built a life centered around off-road racing. Casey competed in almost every type of off-road event throughout the western United States. His portfolio included over 30 races in Baja, Mexico, and the Tunisia Rally in northern Africa. He served as the American consultant for the Incas Rally in Peru and was the event coordinator for three Nevada rally events, representing the company "Acerbis Adventure" based in Italy and organized the Nevada 2000, the single longest off-road race ever held in the United States. He won 16 off-road motorcycle racing championships in his career and in 1980 was the first person ever to solo the Baja 1000 and finish. He was the only person to finish every Barstow to Vegas race that he started. In 1968, Casey and his good friend opened Sportsman Cycle Sales. Through Casey's guidance and support, Sportsman Cycle birthed and nurtured many racers that went on to have very successful racing careers. In 1968, he also formed the Motorcycle Racing Association of Nevada (MRAN) as a non-profit organization to provide local racing opportunities with a heavy focus on family participation. He formed Best in the Desert Racing Association in 1984 for off-road motorcycle racing. He introduced the "Vegas to Reno" race in March 1996, adding cars, trucks and quads to his races for the first time. Casey grew Best in the Desert into North America's largest and most prestigious off-road racing organization. Casey was inducted into the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame in 2012, joining the ranks of off-road racing's greatest legends. Casey enjoyed hunting throughout his life and was an avid Nevada historian. Casey was a man of integrity, extraordinary passion, loyalty and patriotism. He had the uncommon ability to mobilize armies of volunteers to join him in his adventures. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. He is survived by his constant companion and partner, of 18 years, Diane DeLauer; sons, Daryl Folks (Sheri) of Boulder City, and Bryan Folks of Las Vegas; a sister, Joan Ragona-Suarez of Amelia Island, Fla.; and three granddaughters, Adrianna, Morgan and Marlee. Services will be private. The family is planning a celebration of life event in memory of Casey in mid-February. Details on date, time and location for the Celebration of Life will be announced on the Best in the Desert website www.BITD.com and on the Best in the Desert Facebook page.
