It was through his practice he helped countless people lead happy, healthy lives. Raymond used his unique sense of humor to make genuine, uplifting connections with those in need. Outside of work, Raymond loved the Yankees, planting his vegetable garden, relaxing at his summer home in Rhode Island, listening to Sinatra by the pool, and spending time with his children and grandchildren. Most of all, Raymond loved spending every possible second with the love of his life, Ellen. They talked, laughed, and loved every step of the way for over fifty years.
