RAY MANTLE Ray Mantle, 77, of Las Vegas, passed away March 3, 2013, after a courageous battle with cancer, with loved ones at his side. He was born Feb. 22, 1936, in Cardin, Okla., and was veteran of the U.S. Army. Ray was the brother of the late New York Yankees center fielder, Mickey Mantle. After attending NEOA&M College, he was signed by the New York Yankees baseball club, but ended his baseball career when he was drafted by the U.S. Army. He moved to Las Vegas in 1970 to join his brother, Roy, in the casino industry, which he worked until he retired. Ray loved to play golf and the shiftwork at the casinos allowed him to enjoy his passion. He is survived by his wife, Nancy; son, Robert and his wife, Kim; and grandsons, Marlon and Mason, all of Las Vegas; sister, Barbara of Del City, Okla.; and brother, Butch of Lawton, Okla. Services will be private.
