I met Raymond in 1972 when he first started working for the Police Dept. we became friends sharing lots of weekends together fishing and cooking meals together. He was a quiet almost shy individual until the time you needed him. Then he stepped up. I have so many great memories of our time together. I will think of you every day Raymond until my time comes to go home. I nick named him SUPER because he was a super person.

Raymond and I were classmates in the police academy. Never heard anyone say a bad thing about him and I never heard him say a bad thing about anyone else. Good man, good cop, good friend.
