Our deepest condolences to the DeRaymond family on the passing of Russell. My mother Joan Piagesi and Russell were classmates at Easton High School. It was always a pleasure hearing mom and Russ share information concerning their classmates. Also, Russ and Anna would sit a few rows behind us in church each week, and Russ never said no when asked if he would recite a decade of the rosary. Russ will surely be missed by mom and me, and we do hope Anna and the family find some comfort knowing how much Russ will be missed. We won't be able to look at "Russ's pew" without being reminded of his kind smile. Rest in peace, Russ, and until we meet again, watch over your family and friends.

Russell was such a nice caring man. Will miss seeing him sitting out on his bench waving to me when I´m coming or going . Loved the way he always joked with our son Devin when he saw him . Will also miss him sharing his wine and limoncello every time Paul did a small job for him . Prayers and hugs to all of you as you go through this tough time .

Sir, I did not know you personally, however I would be honored to "Thank You" for your dedicated and honorable Military Service; to OUR Country. At a later date, we will meet in that "SPECIAL PLACE" which GOD has reserved, for ALL of those who have stepped forward; to serve their Country in a Military Uniform. May ALL of GOD'S blessings, be with your Dear Family! Sergeant Major (E-9) Larry E. & Mrs. Sheila M. (LaBar) Williams, US Army/ Retired (TN)

You can live 100 years, but you'll not find a better man, from a better family, than Russ DeRaymond. His late brother Ray was married to mom's late cousin Jamel. All his life and even after Ray died, Russ never forgot us and never failed to pay his respects to our family, in our times of need. Like his brother Ray, whom we adored, this man was special, with a huge heart. Rest in Peace, May Perpetual Light Shine Upon you, and thank you for all the kindness you and your great family gave to ours, all those 60 years. Allah Yerhamouh
