Raymond was a true gentleman. He was a great father, brother, uncles, and grandfather. He loved his children and grandchildren, and showed them the outdoor life by taking them out hunting and fishing and camping. Raymond was an avid horseman who could ride the most high spirited of horses. He also loved to be out on the lake fishing with his dad, Doug. Raymond had a special relationship with him and they spent countless hours together cutting wood, setting the fishing nets, hunting and working in the logging industry. They would have coffee together and talk about how things were going in their daily lives. Raymond was a man who would rescue someone who was in trouble no matter what it was. If a person desperately needed something and if Raymond had it, he would give it up gladly, just to be of help.
