Raymond married the love of his life, Marlene Rayls, September 22, 1962 in Webb City and they made their home in Shidler. The couple just celebrated their 48th anniversary.

He was an avid Shidler Tiger fan even when he didnt have kids in school sports. He was very well known for saying, Mr. Official, when he disagreed with an umpire or referees call, which was often.
