Survived by wife, Cecelia; sister, Sandy; son, Justin; and grandchildren, Emma and Alex.
Kind words to Raymond's wife from a dear friend of his after learning of his passing, echoed by all who were close to him.
I can’t express the sorrow I feel at his passing, yet it is followed by a joy that I had in knowing him. No one knows more than you what a great man he is. In my 36 years of driving, I can count on one hand the number of people that I have connected with in the way I connected with him, and I attribute that to him because that is the way he is. He will be missed by all who knew him. We can take comfort in the hope we have of connecting with him again after this life. I pray you can find the peace, closure, and strength you need to carry on as you bear the sorrow of this loss.
Ray brightened our lives every day that he was a part of them. His contagious smile, his unmatched bright and shining personality will be dearly missed by all who have had the pleasure of knowing him. May you rest in peace and know we all love you more than words can express.”
