An honor to serve: Ray Reese makes decision to leave county attorney position
By Robert Proctor
The Cuero Record
Forty-years-ago, Raymond “Ray” H. Reese was shuffling through the halls of Cuero High School without so much as a thought of serving the people of DeWitt County or even studying law in his future. Time sure flies by for everyone, and Reese has spent the past quarter-of-a-century as County Attorney for DeWitt County, a role he recently submitted his resignation for and will continue through June 28.
Simply put, it was time.
“Ecclesiastes 3:1 says there’s time for everything under the heavens,” Reese stated, a man whose life is built on his faith. “It’s just time. It’s been a privilege and an honor to serve.”
Reese stepped in as county attorney on Sept. 20, 1994, after Robert Post passed away from an illness.
“I was called and asked if I would be willing,” Reese recalled. “As a lawyer, I always feel like if you can serve your community in a prosecutorial role, then you take that up. I never thought I’d be doing that 25 years later. Time goes by in a hurry.”
