Wayne Raymond (Plainview)

Wayne Raymond, 72, of Hale Center passed away on Thursday, June 16, 2022. Graveside services will be held at 11:00 A.M. Wednesday, June 22, 2022 at the Wilson Cemetery in Wilson, Texas with Rev. Kris Knippa officiating. Arrangements are under the care of Kornerstone Funeral Directors of Plainview. Wayne was born on October 31, 1949 to Richard Norris Raymond and Kathryn Crowder Raymond in Lubbock. He grew up in Abernathy and graduated from Abernathy High School in 1968. He enlisted into the U.S. Navy and served as a Navy Diver 18 months before being honorably discharged due to a farm hardship back home. He was a farmer for many years. He later drove trucks and worked as a carpenter. He married Ruth Martinez on June 13, 1988 in California. She preceded him in death in 2014. Wayne loved to ride bicycles and he loved his dogs. Wayne was an ultra-cyclist and was known to ride at least around a 100 miles a week and estimated 25,00 miles a year. This love for cycling forged a bond with 4 other cyclists in the area that he lived in California. They rode together three times a week and Wayne received much ribbing because of his Texas accent and his effortless Chatter. Wayne moved back to Hale Center in 2018 after living the last 30 years in California. Wayne was also preceded in death by his parents: and brother Donald Edward Raymond. Survivors include his brother, Larry Dean Raymond and wife Catherine of Ennis; sister, Kathy Ann Blount and husband Shane; his uncle Charles and aunt Faye Waters; aunts, Jimmie Campbell and Joyce Handcock; daughter-in-laws, Jackie and Kenny Grendyke of California and Pamela Levy also of California; and many cousins, nieces, and nephews.
