Raymond Luis Caraballo Larson, 29, of Deltona, Florida tragically passed away November 2, 2018, in Orlando, Florida.

Born May 12, 1989, in Kaiserslautern, Germany he was the son of MSG Luis N. Caraballo, USA, Retired and The Honorable Tina L. Caraballo, Orange County Judge. Seventeen short months ago, Raymond married the love of his life and fellow football fanatic, Morgan Douglass. They moved into their first home in April of this year and his four-legged son, Tucker, finally got his dream yard.

Raymond was a linebacker at University High School and graduated in 2007. He stayed local and completed his bachelor’s degree at the University of Central Florida remaining an avid/rabid Knight fan. On Saturday home games you would find Raymond, Morgan, his brothers and their friends tailgating at the usual location near parking garage I. There would always be something tasty on the grill and possibly a cut on one of those big lips from shot-gunning a beer or two! After that, he’d lose his voice cheering on the Knights. He loved traveling with the team and treasured seeing them secure the National Championship in the Peach Bowl in 2017 with Morgan at his side.

Football was Raymond’s passion and he had the privilege of coaching young men since the time he graduated from high school. He coached at University High School, The Masters Academy and Seminole High School. On the night of his passing, SHS won its final regular season game and the players honored him, expressing their love and appreciation for the impact he had on their lives and keeping them on the right path.

In addition to football Raymond loved to cook and dance. He was an adoring husband, a loving son, and devoted brother.

Raymond is survived by his wife Morgan Caraballo of Deltona, Florida, parents Luis and Tina Caraballo and brothers Joshua and Luis Caraballo all of Orlando, Florida.

A visitation is scheduled for Saturday November 10, 2018 from 5:00 - 7:00 pm at the Baldwin-Fairchild Oaklawn Chapel. A service to celebrate Raymond's life will immediately follow the visitation at 7:00 pm.

This is such a loss. God really needed a special angel. I was introduced to Ray by his mother in-law Karla and of the times I went to family gatherings I knew with Ray and Morgan 🙏🏼💕there it was bound to be lots of laughs. A true respectful gentleman kind knowledgeable and full of life. I pray for peace within the family and a comfort of knowing that he will always be by your sides. RIP Ray. Again extremely sorry 🙏🏼

We were so blessed to coach with Ray Caraballo! He was our Shot Put and Discus Coach for our Track and Field Team at The Master’s Academy. He was a funny, kind, easy going guy. But he was also a quiet and fierce competitor. Our athletes loved him and so did we. Always could count on him. My favorite memory is from our State T & F meet when our bus broke down in St Pete, after an already long day. We had to wait in the parking lot while we were trying to find rental car companies that were still open at midnight to figure out a way to get everyone home. We had a dance party in the parking lot and turned lemons into lemonade. You were a great guy! You will be greatly missed by so many! Your wife and family are in our prayers! ❤️

So many memories. This guy taught me so much while we were growing up. He taught me family isn’t always blood. He taught me how to drive stick! In his mustang! He had the worse luck with cars lol. Crashed 2 of them before graduating HS! He saw me off to basic training and made sure he was there to see me graduate. He was my best friend growing up. There wasn’t many places I went that he wasn’t by my side. He was the reason I made it through my teenage years. He was the reason I pushed myself in HS. He’s been making a difference in people’s life since the day he was born. I’d give anything to take his place.

Coach Caraballo forced me to try new things — in this case, shot put and discus. Because of his brutal honesty and genuine passion for coaching, I am on a division 1 track and field team today. Not only did Coach Caraballo show me how to do my sport, he also taught me how to love the competition. What I am now learning is that a good coach is not only a coach, but a friend; Caraballo was the latter. I am so thankful for his role in my life, and I am sending my prayers.

Coach Caraballo was one of the most influential people in my high school career. I could never thank him enough for all the laughs we shared, times spent watching film and making a game plan, and long talks after practice about life. Coach Ray was such a genuine, kind, intelligent man and he really helped shape me into who I am today. The world was truly blessed with Coach Caraballo while he was here and I am thankful for the impact he had on me and all of my teammates.
