After having served in the National Guard, Raymond worked for the Sea Island Company for thirty-three years. There he was the supervisor of the butcher shop, cutting the meat for many different chefs and teaching many apprentices whom he helped train for a future career in the culinary arts.
This world will truly miss this big-hearted gentle man, who could always be counted on for his wisdom and help. Raymond loved cars and loved working on them, which he often did. This ability brought him together with his wife, Deborah, when she had something go wrong with her Sentra. Raymond was skilled in many ways and was no stranger to a hammer and saw or even a pair of scissors if someone needed a haircut, but was unable to pay a barber.
Memorial services for Raymond will be held on Saturday, August 1st at 11:00 a.m. in the chapel of Brannen Kennedy Funeral Home in Glennville, officiated by the Rev. Jerry Knight.
