Raymond F. Hale Godfrey Obituary

Raymond F. Hale Godfrey, 50, of West Hartford died unexpectedly Monday, May 26, 2014. He was the beloved son of Jane (Popham) Godfrey and John J. "Jack" Godfrey. Born in Hartford, Ray attended Conard High School in West Hartford and served with the U.S. Navy. He went on to graduate salutatorian from Middlesex Community College and with highest honors from Trinity College. Ray worked for a staffing agency but his future was compromised when a drunk driver rear-ended his vehicle. He cared for his uncles Dick, Michael and David and spent his last years caring for his mother and step-father. Ray was a brilliant, witty, loving person with a great sense of humor. Many friends from his support group will miss his advice "to put principles above personalities" and love everyone. A Memorial Service will be held at a later date. Taylor & Modeen Funeral Home, West Hartford has care of arrangements. For additional information and online condolences, please visit www.taylorandmodeen.com.
