Despite his sickness, Raymond fought a good fight for 7 years. He was an inspiration to many. He was ready to meet Jesus and be done with all the suffering. He was a firefighter for 20 plus years and farmed most of his life. He could often be found in the farm shop working on equipment. Raymond was a kind, compassionate and generous man. He was always willing to lend a helping hand when someone was in need- regardless of what the circumstance might be. Camping was the love of him and Pam’s life- they met many friends across the entire United States.
