|Death: ||Nov. 14, 1970|
Dr. Ray R. Hagley, M.D., was born in Huntington in 1935. He was the son of Alva and Anvis Lykins Haley. He was a graduate of Huntington High School and Marshall University. He received his medical degree from the George Washington School of Medicine. A former president of the Marshall Alumni Association, he was one of the team's physicians. He was 34 when he died with his wife, Shirley. They left four daughters, Denise, Kimberly, Deborah and Karen; and two sons, David and Douglas.
On a rainy hill side in Wayne County, West Virginia, the lives of 75 people were lost in the worst single air tragedy in NCAA sports history. Among the losses were nearly the entire Marshall University football team, coaches, flight crew, numerous fans, and supporters. The event marked a boundary by which an entire community would forever measure time... before or after "The Crash". This site is a memorial to the lives that were lost on that evening; to honor those men and women who made a mark in the hearts of a school, a community and a nation.
