He met Hazel in Van Horn in 1970 and they instantly fell in love and were married on Feb 5th, 1971. They moved to Las Cruces, NM and Raymond started working for the City of Las Cruces. He retired as a Street Engineer and they even named a road after him. He worked hard his whole life, and never asked anyone to do something he was not willing to do himself. Raymond was a car enthusiast his entire life. And he and his best friend Frank Davis raced and built cars. And they definitely got into trouble several times when they were young and out driving the streets of El Paso. His love of cars never went away, he later rebuilt a 1965 Ford Falcon that won several awards. Raymond and Hazel went to many car shows and were dedicated members of the Christian Cruizers Car Club. The club gives food boxes out to many families in need during the holidays and bought jackets for young children who were also in need.
