Your parents were a pillar to the community and to St. Mary of the Knobs. With their guidance, St. Mary of the Knobs has been blessed with multiple generations of the Libs family to carry on their good works.

Peace to you all.

Raymond was my bus driver for at least 6 years that I remember 1969-1976.
He made riding the bus a fun experience !!
He was the best !!! I’ve thought about him over the past many years.
My condolences to his family. Sounds like he lived a long and happy life.
