Today, he is still a devout fan of the sport of boxing along with drag racing, high performance engine building and classic muscle cars.

While performing as an actor, he noted an obvious preference for comedic roles and the natural ability to keep audiences laughing.
After several years of acting, Ray Mack left the entertainment industry to complete both a bachelor's degree from University of Michigan and a Master’s of Divinity from Ashland University. He embarked upon a career in business, where he attained Six Sigma certification and worked in management for several Fortune 100 companies in the automotive and retail industries while also serving in leadership with many churches across several states.
