Raymond D. Saxe III, 50, of Rye Brook, died June 1, 2013, at Sound Shore Medical Center in New Rochelle.
Known to his friends and family as "Ray," he was born Nov. 14, 1962, in New York City to parents R. Daniel Saxe Jr., of Winchester, Va., and JoAn Teetor Saxe, of New Castle, Ind., and New Orleans, according to Edwin L. Bennett Funeral Homes, which handled his funeral arrangements and published his obituary.
He grew up in Scarsdale, graduating from Scarsdale High School in 1980. He received a B.S. in electrical engineering from the University of Bridgeport in 1985, and an MBA in finance from the Stern School of Business at New York University
in 1990. After working in systems engineering and project management for 15 years at Deutsche Bank AG, he moved to HSBC, where he was senior vice president in charge of global risk technology for the Americas, and later senior vice president/global head for client onboarding.
He was married to Naomi Reinitz, also of Scarsdale. They have three daughters: Amanda, Abigail, and Rachel. He was a devoted husband and father, and he loved spending time with his family and friends. He loved skiing, tennis, a good mystery, and the Grateful Dead. He was an excellent drummer, and he was thrilled and proud when one of his daughters decided to take up the drums too. One of his favorite times of the year was his family's annual summer vacation at Lake George, in the Adirondacks. He has requested that his ashes be scattered there.
Saxe is survived by his ex-wife Naomi Reinitz Saxe, of Rye Brook; his daughters; a sister, Emily Saxe Nydam of Wellesley, Mass.; and his mother, JoAn Teetor Marder of Tucson, Ariz.
A private memorial service was held for family and friends at Congregation Kneses Tifereth Israel in Port Chester, officiated jointly by Rabbi Jaymee Alpert and the Rev. Dr. John W. Miller of Hitchcock Presbyterian Church in Scarsdale. A memorial plaque will be placed in his memory at the Teetor Mausoleum in Hagerstown, Ind.
