Raymond loved life and all the beauty of Godís creation. He took time to savor the intricacies of a flower, the majesty of a sunrise or sunset, the strength of a tree. Even into his 90s, he amazed people with the clearness of his mind and strength of his will. His passion was his family and his love of Jesus. He is now home.

A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. Wednesday, March 10, at Glenview Memorial Gardens, W1219 Glenview Ave., Ixonia.
