Raymond was a kind and loving family man. He was very proud to have served in the United States Navy during WWII. Raymond was highly decorated receiving medals such as the American Theatre Medal, Victory Medal and Asiatic Pacific Medal. Although he was very proud of his service, he would only discuss it with his buddies. If you were to ask Raymond, “The guns were loud” is all he would tell you.
Raymond and his wife Florence were married for sixty-nine years having a son and two daughters. He also was a loving grandfather to his seven grandchildren. Raymond worked for General Mills for many years in the shipping department were he retired from. He had many hobbies that kept him busy in his free time. Raymond was an avid stamp collector. He would get letters from all over the world and would trade the stamps amongst fellow collectors. He also loved being outside. Raymond loved to garden, growing vegetables and flowers. In Cassadaga, NY he has 10-15 acres of space to garden and would always plant flowers all around the house. Raymond always grew a little bit of everything. He also loved to watch the birds out the big window of his home. He had a birdfeeder he always kept filled, but sometimes the birds did not want to wait for him. Raymond loved the NY Yankees and would catch all of the games if possible. He will truly be missed by his friends, family and loved ones.
