Raymond "Ray" Slocum (16 August 1937 - 14 November 2013)[1] was an Australian rules footballer who played for Fitzroy in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

Recruited locally, Slocum developed into a wingman after being used initially as a rover and at half forward. After retiring he became coach of the Fitzroy reserves and filled in as senior coach for a match against Hawthorn in the 1968 VFL season. He would later coach Eltham and steered them to the 1972 Diamond Valley Football League premiership.
