Newark Valley: Raymond J. Rappolt, 56, passed away at his home on August 4, 2014 surrounded by his family. Born in Kingston, NY, Ray was the son of Phyllis and the late Raymond C. Rappolt. In addition to his mother, Phyllis Rappolt of Newark Valley, he is survived by his brothers, Robert Rappolt, Christopher and Debra Rappolt; and his sister, Susan Gallagher. Also surviving are his nieces and nephews whom he just adored and loved to shower with gifts, Sean, Brian, Kevin, Annmarie and Kaitlyn Gallagher, Samuel, Maxwell, and Kassidy Rappolt; his uncles, Noel 'Butch' and Jay Stanley; and his special friend, Mary Fisher and family. In addition to his father, he was also predeceased by his uncle, Richard Stanley. Ray enjoyed driving truck for Lopke and working with his fellow employees. In his 'nonworking' hours, he was happy with a fishing pole in hand, watching stock car racing, hunting and being with his family. Ray also had a second family…at Dunkin Donuts in Owego. He just loved DD coffee! Ray's family will receive friends on Thursday from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the MacPherson Funeral Home in Newark Valley.
