The veteran adult film star was found dead on Saturday night.
His co-star Seth Gamble told AVN that Ray has a “golden heart”.
He said: “I met Joey when I was 18, he and Dale [DaBone] were the first to shoot me.
“It was like, let’s take this kid on our side and show him what we know, good and bad.
“I was pleasantly surprised to meet them, and they certainly showed me how to promote the health of the industry we are in.
“He’s one of the funniest guys I’ve ever known. He’s a creative guy, he loves business, he has a heart of gold.”
But he added that he hasn’t seen Ray “for several years, because he’s on a bad road.”
Porn actor and director Dale DaBone said: “I don’t even know what to think right now.
“It was easy when I cut things off, I thought about all the bad things that happened, but now the only thing I can think about is 25 years of all the fun, crazy things, stupid that we used.do.
“We’ve always had each other.
