Our deepest sympathy Gloria and Cara on Raymond’s passing.
I grew up with Raymond and our families spent many happy times together. He was very involved with his community, a loving husband and a great dad to Cara. John always enjoyed his conversations with Raymond talking about cars and motorcycles.
He will be missed and may he rest in peace.
