Raymond led a fulfilling life marked by love, dedication, and service. His devotion to his family was evident in his marriage to Armida Myrna Barrio on February 5, 1955. Together they built a strong and lasting marriage that lasted over 69 years. Their union was seen as a source of inspiration for all who knew them.

A man of integrity and courage, Raymond enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Corps in 1947 and served his country with honor until his honorable discharge from the U.S. Air Force in 1951.
