I worked with Raymond at GKN in the Quality department shortly after coming there in 1986. Raymond was instrumental in getting our Lab up and running. There weren't any aspects of Quality that he wasn't familiar with. Those of us that had the privilege of working with him learned so much. He was always a kind and patient man when teaching others. He will be truly missed by those whose lives he touched. May God bless your family during this time.

We were so saddened about Raymond, but we know he has entered into the joys of The Lord. I can imagine him meeting with Granny and Granpa, Uncle Vernon, and all the rest of the crew that are already there including our Mom and Dad. We pray for joy that passes all understanding for the family and Lillian. Please give her hugs from us! We love you all....
