Ray is the son of Anthony C. and Mary Magdalene Kopp Breimayer both interred at St. Mary's Miriam Catholic Church cemetery. See Findagrave Memorial No. 42883514 for a listing of his family members.

Ray married Beatrice M. Chipman b. 27 OCT 1915 d. 12 FEB 1985, on 25 NOV 1944 at St. Mary's Miriam, and they are survived by one daughter. Prior to her death, Ray and Beatrice divorced. Ray lived for many years with Leo Kennedy and his sister Esther R. Breimayer Kennedy and operated a music instrument store, R & W Music, next to the Kennedy grocery store and home in Belding. Ray was also employed in auto sales and led a country music band playing weekends in Michigan locales.

Ray and Gladys Watts Drier b. 14 JAN 1926 d. 30 JAN 2005, married on 13 JUN 1992, and they lived in Remer, Mecosta County, Michigan and Mesa, Arizona, until her death in 2005. Gladys Watts Drier is interred with her first husband in Pine River Cemetery, Blanchard, Isabella County (see Findagrave Memorial No.92380405).

Erroneous Findagrave memorials show Ray and Gladys interred in St. Michael's cemetery, Remus, possibly because their funerals were held in St. Michael's Catholic Church in Remus and perhaps because they had purchased plots in the cemetery. But, the obituary for Ray Breimayer indicates that his burial was to take place in this cemetery, and the obituary for Gladys indicates that she was to be interred in Pine River Cemetery, Blanchard, Isabella County, MI (see Findagrave Memorial No. 92380405 showing her interred with her first husband). The erroneous Findagrave Memorial Nos. 36947576 and 36947577 include photos and biographic information about Ray and Gladys. A further Findagrave Memorial No. 10495813 is based solely on the Gladys Breimayer obituary.
