He is well known for cursing the streets of Jackman in his convertible, “his lawn mower!” He was known for his smile, the slight twinkle in his eye and his good nature. He loved to meet new people, whom he quickly added to his friend list. He was loved and adored by all that met him. He will always be remembered for his friendly charismatic personality! Raymond was a US Air Force veteran serving during the Vietnam era. He spent time working in a variety of other occupations such as mechanic, KFC Manager, and in the logging business, but the majority of his adult life was spent being Mr. Mom to his four children who he followed in everything that they did wearing the his proud parent badge! They were the light of his life!
