After the war, Raymond and his wife moved to Springfield where he soon joined Mutual of Omaha Insurance Company in Administration, where he worked for 42 years. While a Manager he led the sales team to many President's Circle awards, offering him travel to many parts of the globe. His love of travel lasted, and after June's death he met Naomi Fowler with whom he spent many wonderful years traveling and enjoying other mutual activities.
