Raymond retired from BP Amoco after working there for 43 years. He was a member of the 4th Degree Knights of Columbus, Trinity Council #3755 in Chicago, IL. He was also a member of the Griffith Board of Zoning and Appeals. Ray was an assistant high school football coach for 18 years at Griffith and Andrean High Schools where he was a member of two state championship winning staffs (1997 Griffith, 2004 Andrean).

Raymond was a high school referee in both football and basketball. He was an avid Colts and White Sox fan. He enjoyed golfing and spending time with his grandkids. Ray loved a perfectly cooked steak and a cold glass of beer (better make it two).  He loved dancing spontaneously with his wife and blasting rock music.  He loved 4th of July fireworks and family time above all.  He had a true DIY spirit and an endless positivity for life.      

In lieu of flowers the family asks that you consider making a donation to Andrean High School in Ray’s name.
