Ray Steward worked at the Eveleigh railway workshops. He appeared to have been a mate of Richard Swanson as they both played cricket for Hurstville-St George, played rugby league with Wests and were both good athletes competing in the same carnival events.

He was the captain of the Eveleigh Railway Workshop rugby union team in 1912. That team included Richard Swanson. Wests players, Ray Steward, Richard Swanson, and Harry Clark were all Car (Carriage) Painters for the NSW railways.

Ray played thirty First Grade games for Wests between 1912 and 1914, scoring nine tries. He trialled with West’s First Grade in 1920, however there is no indication that he played in the competition that season.

Ray Steward died in the St George District in October 1940. He is buried at the Woronora Memorial Park Sutherland, NSW. His remains are located in plot Lawn 3 0244.
