Raymond C. Oligher Obituary
Oligher, Raymond C.



During the morning of December 24, 2015, the joy of our lives, Raymond Oligher passed into eternal life. He was the most loving, sincere, kind, dedicated, gentle, humorous person ever to grace this earth. He was loved by his children, Ray and Barbara, and his three "step-children"

He was born and raised in Pennsylvania â€" served in the US Army in Europe towards the end of WWII (1943-1949). He graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in biology; hired by the Corps of Engineers, Portland and Walla Walla District offices where he worked on some of the largest and most extensive projects on the Columbia and Snake Rivers. His expertise was in the area of fishery biology â€" especially the fish ladders on those major rivers. His official title was "Chief, Fish and Wildlife Section". He retired from the Corps on 1980. During his employment years with the Corps, he was active in several professional groups relative to his position as a fishery biologist.

His family life was centered around his children â€" fishing, 4-H, rifle club, church youth groups, and most other activities that young people find to do.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Loy and Margaret Oligher; his older brother, Howard and wife, Fran; and his first wife, Erica.

Survivors are Karen, his wife of 34 years; Ray L. Oligher (Janet), son; Barbara McKinney, daughter; Janette Johnson (Jim), Daniel Grant (Sonja), and Kristin Godwin.

A Memorial Service will be held on Sunday, January 17, 2:00 p.m. at Saint Paul Lutheran Church, 1100 Indian School Rd NE, Albuquerque. Memorial gifts may be made to St Paul and Valley Lutheran Church, 3259 NM-47, Los Lunas, NM 87031. Please visit our online guestbook for Raymond at www.FrenchFunerals.com.
