Raymond, also known as "Mr. Fix It" (there wasn't a small engine he couldn't repair), was loved by all and had a special knack of making people laugh. Many visits and special times were shared with great friends, Jackie and Diana Tobin. His love of outdoors (hunting and salmon fishing) was one of his favorite past times that brought him much joy throughout his life.
Whether it was family, friends or the neighborhood dogs, Raymond loved to be surrounded by all. Smiling, laughing and sharing all he had with the people around him.
