Russell Chance Raymond Obituary
ODESSA Russell Chance Raymond, of Odessa, was called unexpectedly Home with the Lord after a tragic car accident in West Odessa. He was born in Odessa on May 2, 1994 and had just celebrated his 18th birthday. He had been a student at Big Spring High School.

Chance was a very independent, strong willed person who was meticulous about his appearance. He enjoyed working with his dad and began working on his own (mowing lawns) at a young age, earning his own money and buying his own clothes. Chance was a shoe fanatic and also loved his Dickie shorts and t-shirts. His favorite color was baby blue. He was giving and caring and always put other's needs before his own. His greatest desire was to be with his mom and be a part of her life. Chance enjoyed being with his family, working, and spending time with his friends. He loved music and loved to party. He bought a go cart that he thought was good when he bought it. He worked on it for years and finally gave up and sold it.

Those left to cherish his memory are his father: Russell Raymond Jr. and wife Rea Walton-Raymond of Big Spring; mother: Loraine Renee Chance Raymond and husband Michael Fitzgerald of Odessa; paternal grandmother: Barbara Bryant of Big Spring; maternal grandmother: Mary Frances Chance of Odessa; two sisters: Ka Shell Raymond of Odessa and Shaylee Raymond of Big Spring; step sister: Briana Walton; step-brothers: Casey Brackett and Darrion Moore; nieces: Andrea Nicole Renee Raymond and Nevaeh Lynn Marie Raymond, both of Big Spring and Zia La Sha Raymond of Odessa; uncles: Richard Salgado, Jose Garcia and wife Lori, Doug Petree, Benjamin Salgado, and Mike Garcia, all of Odessa and Henry Raymond of Big Spring; aunts: Darlene Poe and husband Rod and Dara Moore, and Ester Garcia Hernandez all of Odessa, Tina Raymond and husband Brandon Reed of Cleburne and Misty Twilligear of Big Spring and cousins: Justin, Dustin, and Paige Raymond, all of Big Spring.
