Florida Death with Dignity

How Florida Death with Dignity started:

Having always believed that there has to be a better way concerning how people die and the lack of openness about death in America, Tony came across the Death with Dignity website.  Enrolling in the Dignity 50 Roadmap Series led him to meeting Valerie Lovelace, Statewide Campaigns Director, Death with Dignity National Center (DDNC).  With guidance from DDNC, Tony accepted the challenge to organize and lead a grassroots movement to educate Floridians and work towards legislation for medical aid in dying. The group Florida Death with Dignity was founded in November 2020 and is an all-volunteer, independent, non-political, non-sectarian organization. 

Tony Ray, Founder FLDWD

“The greatest human freedom is to live and die according to our own desires and beliefs”


Tony Ray is a fifth generation Floridian born in Winter Haven surrounded by an extended family whose compassion for each other established a sense of community that guided his entire life.

As a retired Building Contractor who specialized in commercial buildings and custom homes in the Melbourne area since the 1980’s, now he is pursuing social issues he is passionate about.

Married for 26 years, he and his wife enjoy traveling and boating.
