Raymond transitioned into his spiritual home on April 15, 2017 at the age of 91. He was born on August 31, 1925 in San Bernardino, California to his mother Luz Madrigal Arias and his father Luis Arias. Raymond had four sisters and six brothers: Luisa Arias Gonzalez, Angelina Arias Hernandez, Guadalupe Arias Hernandez, Rosalie Arias Hernandez, Juan Arias, Daniel Arias, Ruben Arias, David Arias, Benjamin Arias and Samuel Arias. Raymond served in the United States Marine Corps before he married the love of his life Lily Cano Jimenez in 1943. They were married for 65 years before his beloved passed in 2011. Raymond was an outstanding respectable citizen of Riverside Casa Blanca where he lived all his life and worked for the Riverside Cement Company for 42 years. He was a faithful member of The Church of God of Prophecy in Riverside where he dedicated all of his time and talents to the Lord. Raymond is survived by his three children Abel Jimenez Arias and his wife Maria, Marian Christoff and her husband Bob and Michael Arias; grandchildren Beverly Arias, Shawn and Lydia Gomez, April Arias, Veronica and Kaze Mitchell, Michelle and Garrett Stewart, Daniel and Kevin Christoff, and nine great grandchildren Adam Gomez, Tristan Stewart, Gavin Stewart, Liam Stewart, Leslie Coto, Nicolas Santana, Anthony Silba, Christopher Martin and Connor Christoff.

Most of all he leaves behind a legacy and a hope through our Lord Jesus Christ.
