My prayers and sympathy for the Wray family. As a member of the Douglass High School Class of 1967, I remember William fondly as a wonderful friend and the outstanding accompanist of the Concert Choir. He will never be forgotten.

My thoughts and prayers are extended to all William’s friends and associates, especially the DHS Class of ‘67 (and in particular my brother, Wallace). Although William was an only child, he was loved by so many. Many knew his mother, Mrs. Freddie Cooper, an accomplished musician. Thus, William became a musician as well, serving as an organist at many churches across the city. May William Rest In Peace.

My sincere Condolences to the family. I will forever appreciate William willingness to help assist me by rendering profound music within the state wide mass choir for the General Baptist Convention of OKC. Even more so my first car was writing up by Mr Williams at Tinker Air Force Credit Union in 1979. Thank you for outstanding services.

My friend since we met at Truman Elementary. He was supportive as I was teased in music class. I last visited him in the nursing home as we reminisce about piano recitals and Mrs. Cooper. I thank God for Wallace Johnson and other classmates and friends in his life, now celebrating the life of William Walter Wray with dignity.

May God bless you with heavenly peace, William Wray.. I and many others counted your mother, Mrs Freddie Wray Cooper, and you as outstanding musicians, as well as great mentors and teachers. We were blessed as you served as musicians and encouraged many others (including me) in our music. May God comfort the many who will miss you. May God bless you eternally for graciously sharing the gifts He placed within you.
