Raymond was most proud of, and loved most deeply, his family and his beautiful wife of 75 years. Ray will always be remembered as a loving husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, and friend, for his welcoming smile, positive attitude, and kind spirit. He has now left those that he loved and cherished here on earth to be with those that he loved and missed so much. His heart has been mended, he has returned home to be with his Creator and his true love, Vida. He will be dearly missed.
