Raymond had a love of singing and playing the guitar. He proudly served his country in the U. S. Army during the Korean War. He worked many years in the grocery business as Produce Manager, never met a stranger, always making sure he did just what his precious wife told him to do and enjoyed time with friends...but his true passion in life was his family and the time they spent together making memories. Raymond will be truly missed by all who knew and loved him.
