His parents were educators: Raymond Thornton, Sr., the superintendent of schools in Grant County, and Wilma Elizabeth Stephens Thornton, a teacher for a half-century. He was reared in the Church of Christ, which his father established in Grant County and served as a Deacon. Always a bright child, Ray repurposed his mother’s sewing machine motor to power his bicycle, inventing his own motorscooter. After becoming bored with the repetitiveness of long division problems, he once wrote on his half-completed homework, “All the rest are just the same.”

Ray graduated from Sheridan High School at age sixteen. He took classes at Arkanas State Teachers College that summer with his mother, then enrolled at the University of Arkansas. At the encouragement of his father, he took the Reserve Officers Training School examination to defray college expenses. His score on the exam entitled him to a full scholarship, and he chose Yale University, graduating in 1950 with a degree in international relations and engineering. He then studied law at the University of Texas for one year before receiving his commission in the United States Navy and reporting for duty during the Korean War. Ray saw combat on the aircraft carrier Philippine Sea.

At the end of the war, Ray returned home to Arkansas to attend the University of Arkansas School of Law in Fayetteville. He was a loyal member of Sigma Chi fraternity, a Significant Sig, and remained close to many fellow Sigma Chi’s throughout his life. His first foray into politics came when he ran for and was elected president of the University of Arkansas student body, after campaigning by playing his guitar and singing on building steps around campus, calling himself “Cowboy Ray”.

In 1956, he married Betty Jo Mann of Sheridan. He often recalled the night he fell in love, when Betty walked into a social event at the old Marion Hotel in a yellow dress and took his breath away. They subsequently had three daughters, Nancy Thornton, Mary Jo Hays, and Stephanie Fain. Ray officed his law practice in the Urquhart Building on East Capitol Avenue, where he represented clients including Stephens Inc. and Arkansas Louisiana Gas Company (Arkla), companies developed by his legendary uncle Witt Stephens, his mother’s brother and his mentor.
