He graduated from the University of South Florida with a degree in Economics. He married Annie Banner on March 20,1987 in Tampa, Florida.

After moving to San Antonio in 1990, Raymond started several businesses throughout the years in the areas of carpet cleaning, used office furniture and car restoration. But it was in 1993 when Raymond and Annie started their greatest business venture, Ms. Annie’s Daycare. Through the years, the two Ms. Annie’s daycare centers have served thousands of families in San Antonio and Universal City with their childcare needs. The children will always remember “Mr. Bear” for the care and concern that he always gave to them. Raymond and Annie always enjoyed traveling, both domestic and abroad in their free time. He was a great husband, a great step-dad and a wonderful grandfather. He will forever be missed!

Annie, Deepest sympathies for your loss. My brother Don "Skip" and I got to know Ray in our teens and those two were quite close for a long number of years. I am sure that Raymond only became a bigger and better version of the great kid we got to know. Skip was shaken and saddened to recieve news of Ray's passing and did not know how to reach out to you. If you wish to contact him his # is 352 410 3515. So very sorry for your family's loss. With great respect. M

In life many people pass your way, but few display such great appreciation for others as Ray did; he was honest, a man of few words, but a man with a big heart. He set his priorities on his wife, his family and most importantly his Savior Jesus Christ. Ray we will miss you. God be with Annie in these trying times. We love you very much.
