I had the pleasure of working with Raymond at Burnett Demolition also had the pleasure of fishing with him several times at his cabin on Douglas Lake. Both opportunities created many fond memories. I remember his passion for the outdoors but mostly I remember his love for his family. My prayers and sympathy go out to his wife and all his kids and grandkids.
