Richard P Raymond, Sr.

Worcester/Sarasota - Richard P. Raymond, Sr., 78, of Sarasota, FL, formerly of Worcester, passed away on Friday, March 8, 2019, in Doctors Hospital of Sarasota.

Richard is survived by his wife, Judith (Kenneway) Raymond; his children, Sheila Robert, Shelby Whalen, Candice Adams, and Richard Raymond, Jr., Paul Sharpe, and Kelley Sharpe; nine grandchildren; two great grandchildren; five siblings, Robert E., Douglas, and David Raymond; Ruth Banks, and Maureen DiPadua; many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his first wife, Nancy (Paquin) Raymond, and by eight of his siblings, Roland Jr., Roger, Thomas, Joan, and Norma Raymond, Jean Banks, MaryJane Hamilton, and Janice McQuade.

He grew up in Worcester in a large close-knit family; he served his nation proudly in the United States Army. Upon his return from Military Service, Richard married Nancy and together they set out to raise their family with love.
