I just heard of Raul's passing, and I'm stunned! Raul, John Ward, Gil Hall, Bob Hines, and I were roommates at Florida State University during our junior year. That was a special year for me. We had a lively, and exciting time! I can still remember Raul the term he had swimming class first thing in the morning, and it was COLD! I will always remember helping him with his kinesiology class. I learned a whole different side of physics that term. RIP, friend. I enjoyed our time together.
Dearest Elsa, how sad it was to hear of Raul's passing. Such a very nice person. My thoughts and prayers are with you and all of his family.
Love your friend, Zaida Vargas Fallon
Mr. Hernandez taught my daughter, Heidi Rose Taylor at Glynn Archer in 1996. I can remember Heidi coming home talking about the different trips Mr. Hernandez took and how interesting they seemed to be. In fact because of Mr. Hernandez my husband and I took Heidi to see Jamestown and Williamsburg. I used to volunteer a lot for field trips and Mr. Hernandez was always so much fun.

A genuine good friend you were to me Raul. Your passing stunned me. We had some great times in Tallahassee at Florida State University.Being roommates there in our Junior year, was a special time for me. We were always competing in basketball, baseball,as well as football. The memories seem like yesterday. Many nights we stayed up all night cramming for final exams. We taught together after this at Harris Elementary in Key West, where you were as dedicated a Physical Education teacher I have seen. You were a diehard Yankees fan, and I was, and still am, a diehard Cincinnati Redlegs fan.Oh,the arguments,I mean discussions, we had on that topic. Particularly,Johnny Bench versus Thurmond Munson. You were a true friend and I hope you are at peace with the Lord. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your wife. We were all fortunate to have known you. God Bless You.
We will miss you Raul, many good times at Bayview Park, Perry Court & new Wickers Field. You were a light to many & it was always a pleasure to be around you. Hope you & your dad are reunited & looking down on us.
