7/11/1929 - 2/23/2013
Born in Flint, Michigan, but chose San Fernando Valley as home after serving in the Marine Corp touring in China and Korea (1946 - 1949). Raydon had a very successful career in management at the General Motors Van Nuys Plant. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and dune buggy trips with family and friends. Pop was the one who always stepped up and helped in any way that he could.
Survived by ex-wife, close friend Mary Kay; daughter, Kathleen Ann; son, Raydon C. JR; granddaughter, Elizabeth Catherine; and grandson, Raydon Daniel Jude. Many family and friends have passed on, the ones remaining will remember Raydon as a loving father, grandfather, great provider, true friend and good humored man. Pop I will always be proud and grateful to you.
You are my Marine. Love you always.
Daniel will always know who you are.
Pops you will always be loved and remembered.
Papa I will love and cherish you forever. Love ya lots!
