HistoryEdit

Primary Canon HistoryEdit

GhostbustersEdit

Mr. and Mrs. Stantz left Ray the house he was born in. [1] In 1984, the house was used to fund the Ghostbusters' start up money. A third mortgage was taken out on it at 19% and the interest rate alone for the first five years came to $95,000. Peter Venkman assured Ray he wouldn't lose the house.

Secondary Canon HistoryEdit

Ghostbusters: The Supernatural SpectacularEdit

Ray was raised on Long Island by his doctor father and housewife mother. Dr. and Mrs. Stantz had three children total - a son Carl, a second son Ray, and a daughter Jean - in that order. [2] In 1981, a family reunion was held at their ancestral home in Islip. [3] 18 months later, a 727 airplane carrying Dr. and Mrs. Stantz went down while on flight to Puerto Rico. [4] Ray felt some comfort because he knew their fear was growing old and sickly. [5] Egon Spengler insisted they were still alive and trapped in the Bermuda Triangle until Ray punched him. [6] Ray discovered his father left him the house after meeting Peter at the reunion. Dr. Stantz felt Ray would need all the help he could get. [7]

IDW Comic SeriesEdit

On one Christmas Eve, the Ghostbusters were hired by the possessed Woodrow Wainwright Fraser III to capture the Ghosts of Christmas. While facing the Ghost of Christmas Past, Fraser and the Ghostbusters were taken decades into the past to Camp Waconda. They witnessed a very young Ray roasting Stay Puft Marshmallows with his parents around a campfire.
