Raymond is survived by his wife Ethel and his sons Brian (Sheri), Tim (Victoria), Trevor (Courtney), and Evan (Raeanne); by his grandchildren: Adrianna, Trevor, Arlen, and Marcus; and step-grandchildren, Grace, Hannah, Mason and Mac. Raymond is survived by his siblings David, Kenny (Dorothy), Wesley (Donna), Jane Fudge and Doreen. He is predeceased by his siblings Juanita, Rodney, Barry and Violet. Raymond is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews, by brother-in-law Spencer (Linda) Acker, Brian (Linda) Acker, Wayne Acker, and sister-in-law Debbie Arnold and Barbara Acker. He is also survived by his cat, Mittens.
