Ray was the son of Charles Dahlinger and Emma Ruebelmann. He was a test driver, bodyguard, chauffeur, mechanic, friend and confidante of Henry Ford, and most importantly manager of the Ford farms, and the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village, a historical park and museum of Americana. He and his wife Evangeline Cote Dahlinger were jointly and directly responsible for the supervision, building and management of this complex. When Clara Ford died in 1950 Dahlinger was retired by the family. Ray and Evangeline had one son, John Cote Dahlinger (1923-1984), who alleged that he was actually the son of Henry Ford and wrote a book, "The Secret Life of Henry Ford" in 1978. A funeral for Ray was held at the Howe Peterson Funeral Home on June 10th at 2 p.m. but there was no viewing.
