 Ray was born in West Monroe, LA on March 6, 1971.  He attended West Monroe High School, and he graduated from Fort Necessity High School.

Ray was employed by Ernest Contracting for 30 years.  He was described as Mr. Fix-It, holding an array of positions over the years.  He was a welder, mechanic, heavy equipment operator, etc..  You name it, he could do it, and if not, he would quickly figure out how to do it.   Ray was a true outdoors man.  Some of his best times were spent with his Dad and brothers hunting on Davis Island.  In recent years, the peace and quiet of the lake called to him.  He always knew how to find the biggest catch, and it didn’t matter if he was using a fishing pole or his hands!  Ray always had the biggest smile on his face; he was truly a light in so many lives.  His Brother Harvey said it best, “His heart was bigger than he was.  He would give you his truck if you needed it, even if it meant he would be walking home.”

 Ray is survived by his wife, Brandy Pool Guillot, and their daughter, Tory Lollar.  He is also survived by his siblings; Cynthia Guillot Pool (Ken Bethany), Jeanne Guillot Taylor (Steve), Harvey Guillot Jr. (Kim), and Tyner Guillot (Cathy Popp). Four nieces believed he hung the moon; Jennifer Taylor Cain (Jody), Jessica Taylor Ryan (Thad), Lauren Guillot Leone (Ryan), and Hannah Marie Guillot (Brennan Burch). He is also survived by a nephew that was more like a brother, Steven “Dino” Taylor (Jada), 9 great nieces, 1 great nephew, and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.  There is peace in God’s promise that we will see each other again.

 Ray will be welcomed into Heaven by his parents, Harvey E. Guillot Sr. and Katherine “Kathy” Ingram Guillot, his paternal grandparents, Thez Napoleon and LaVada Smith Guillot, and his maternal grandparents, Hubert Elvin “Johnny” and Doris Ann Ingram.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Turkey Creek Baptist Church in Gilbert, LA or Open Range Fellowship “Cowboy Church” in Greenwood, LA.
