Offering our deepest condolences during this difficult time.

Bill and Hilda (Logan, Lance), Jo, Raymond, Aldine and Family. Our loss is heaven's gain. We loved and appreciated Ray so much. I (Hilda) remember the story he told so often about the two of us walking along together when I was a child and asked him if my feet were too big, I still remember the compassion he had and said a big girl needs big feet. That made me feel so much better. So sorry we couldn't be with you all for the visitation and service because of the flu bug. Truly our family was so blessed to have this spiritual giant in our family. Love you all, Hilda and Bill

To the family, warm thoughts and comforted hearts during this difficult time of sorrow. I worked with Mr. Marden often as a CNA at Family Life Enrichment Center. We would always make silly faces at each other and laugh. I enjoyed listening to his daily singing!! He will be missed!!!

I have such wonderful memories of Uncle Ray, especially the stories of his travels. He was a truly inspirational and wonderful man. The world was much better because he was in it. My love and thoughts go out to Aunt "Dink", Raymond, Jo, and the entire family during this difficult time. Lori (Horace's daughter) and Frank Del Nero.

We will miss "Uncle Ray" as he was such a sweet & caring man. All my life I can never think of anything other than the fact he was such a kind man. He will be living in a much better place now. We all love & will miss him!

Ramond A Marden was a great man, a man of honor and his family was his greatest joy. Ray will be remembered always for his love and caring ways.

Psalm 116:15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.

May the comfort of God be with the family during this difficult time.
