Raymond was a devoted husband, father, uncle, grandfather, and a wonderful Rancher. He had a passion for gardening, hunting, riding his horse, and being outdoors. He loved his horse, goat, and made certain to have chickens to keep fresh eggs for his family. While he was not tending to his animals on his spare time, he was hard working, trustworthy, very generous, and demonstrated strong work ethics for his family. He made his family a priority and his values in life were admirable. He served in the Army in 1942. After serving in the Army he worked in the sawmill, then retired from the Village of Ruidoso.
