Family Tribute

Raymond was born on July 17, 1932. He attended St. Patrick’s School in Wyandotte he graduated from 1951. He was married to his high school sweetheart for 67 years. At the age of 3, he got and survived polio. During his lifetime, he worked many jobs including; Pfeiffer’s Beer, Wyandotte Power Plant, manager at a credit union, owner of a marina, bowling alley, car wash, and several trailer parks. Raymond enjoyed playing football, baseball, hockey, and basketball even though he only had one good leg.

He will be remembered for being strong-willed and very determined to not let his polio stop him from achieving anything he set his mind on. He loved boating, fishing, traveling, golfing, playing cards, and going to the casino. He could often be found riding his bike around Wyandotte. Raymond loved his family and worked hard to provide for them while picking up odd jobs.
