Raymond Barron Razo

Raymond B. Razo, 91, went to be with his Lord and Savior surrounded by loved ones on Feb 23rd in Richland, Washington. He was born in Kanopolis, Kansas in April, 1922 to Ramon and Maria Razo. As a young boy he dropped out of school to work and help support the family; then in 1935, his parents migrated to Worland, Wyoming. In 1941 the family moved to and finally settled in Toppenish, Washington. In 1942, he was drafted into the army and served in WWII, under the 84th Infantry Division, Battle of the Bulge in Normandy, France. He met and married Lorraine Vangelinas and together they had 6 children. After they divorced Raymond met Blasa Blanche Marie Perez and he added 6 girls to his family, they were married for 43 years before her passing. He worked hard for many years for local Yakima Valley farmers, Pistoressi, Gamache Farms, and lastly Brulotte Farms until he retired. In 2009 he and his wife moved to Tri-Cities so that his daughter, Michelle Harper, could care for them. He loved to work in his yard in the spring time, wrestle with his grandsons and sharing his wisdom and strength with us all. He was a devout Catholic, a strong believer in Christ and dedicated 2 hours every night to pray for his loved ones, but also to keep his faith strong. He was known by his family and children as a very kind and compassionate person. Raymond was a good man and a great provider. He was a loving son, husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He valued spending time with his family and friends, enjoyed reminiscing and family BBQ's. He raised a blended family of 12 and loved each of them equally and without conditions. He had many friends throughout the Yakima Valley and Tri-Cities and was loved and touched by everyone who met him. Daddy will be greatly missed and remain in our hearts forever. Rest in peace Daddy, until we meet again.
