Raymond was a wonderful father, husband and caring man. He will be sadly missed by many. You were truly blessed to have him as your partner for 37 yrs. I will always remember all the fun times and laughs we all shared together. Came across a photo the other day of Ray, Billy & I from a fishing trip to Trappe Creek...caught some small "Rockfish".

We will keep Ray and his family in our prayers. 06/02/2011 Posted by: John Merritt I really didn't know what to say when I heard of Raymond's passing. This really hit home. When I moved to Cambridge during my junior year in high school, I was blessed that Raymond brought me into his circle of friends. What a great time we had. One of my fondest memories is of Raymond and I on the varsity basketball team during our junior year. There were only three juniors on the team that year and we didn't get a chance to play much, so we sat the bench alot, I think the phrase "Now Coach!" from the end of the bench originated from us. We were known as the "Mauraders", and we wrecked havoc at least during practice, had a great time and definately laughed alot. We use to constantly tell each other, "Man, you are Really Sorry". Raymond, you may have said I was pretty "Sorry", but I am not sorry for having you as a friend. Delores, may God Bless you and your family. God Blessed the rest of us by allowing us to have had Raymond as a friend. 06/02/2011 Posted by: Cecila Wingate You will be greatly missed Raymond,everytime I always saw you at the bank you were always smiling and ready to help anyone. God has called you home to be with Him. My heart goes out to the family. And im very sorry for your loss. 06/02/2011 Posted by: Mike Adams When I was in the third grade we moved to East Appleby Ave. The Faulkner's lived on Shepard Ave. and our back yard's were seperated by a common alley. I spent alot of time over Raymonds. I remember sitting at the kitchen table with Raymond and Miss Lottie drinking black coffee and dropping chunks of sharp cheese in it. It made them soft and gooey to eat and did someting to the coffee. I never did that before I moved there and have never done it since, but darn it was good. Some know this, but Raymond branded me for life with an oyster shell in the alley. I had a stick and Raymond was chunkin' stones for me to hit with the stick. He said " here comes my curve ball" and threw an oyster shell (Big Raymond and Planner Windsor kept the alley holes full of them)... it split my nose from top to bottom, wide open. Went to Dr. Hanks, he sewed me up, with cigar chomped between his teeth and from that day forward I was called "cut nose or cutty" by those who remember. We moved across town when I was in the sixth grade and Raymond and I went our seperate ways. Whenever we saw each other in later years we would always chat as if our yards were still linked to the alley and sometimes the "curve ball" would get in the converstion. I will always consider him a good friend and a good man...he will be missed. 06/02/2011 Posted by: Megan & Jennifer Stevens So hard to believe, and so saddend by the news. Raymond you were a wonderful person, and all the momories of you coaching softball will be with us forever...God Bless You Raymond you will be missed.... 06/02/2011 Posted by: Shelda T Fitzhugh what a great person, always so friendly He will be greatly missed by all 06/02/2011 Posted by: ED ANS PHYLLIS JAMES LOVE AND GODS BLESSINGS TO RAYMONDS FAMILY. HE WAS A GREAT HUMAN BEING AND A GOOD FRIEND. HE WILL BE MISSED. 06/01/2011 Posted by: Phil and Donna Reed We extend our deepest sympathy to Delores, Michele and April. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. 06/01/2011 Posted by: Darlene Pittman Delores, Michele and April Sorry to hear about the loss. Raymond was a great co worker and friend. I would love it when he called the branch and music would be playing and nothing was said until the song ended. But I knew it was Raymond. I will miss him dearly. 06/01/2011 Posted by: A sympathy card has been sent to the family of Raymond D. Faulkner. 06/01/2011 Posted by: Mark Robbins My sympathies to the family. My first thoughts were remembering Raymond from the first grade, to safety patrol, to drummer in our band, and Raymond being called "Eddie Haskell" and I was the "Beav." All fond memories. Raymond was and a great member of the class of 69, a good man and friend to all. He will be missed. 06/01/2011 Posted by: Ron Bromwell Raymond will be extremely missed, the one thing I remember best about Raymond, he had his daughter in a store where I worked at, he went to buy an American Flag for her, she said, Daddy, I can't feel the stars,,he put that one back on the shelf and bought her the Embroidered flag. He was worried more about his daughter than himself. Gonna miss you Ray. 06/01/2011 Posted by: Steve & Nicole Foxwell To the Faulkner family...words can not express how much all of you mean to us and how deeply sorry we are for your loss. Mr.Raymond will always have a special place in our hearts, and we will miss him very much. He was always there when we needed him, and he was such a special friend. We shared so many wonderful memories, from concerts at sailwinds,very late dinners at the cambridge diner, weddings,getting down on the dance floor and of course boat docking contests. These precious memories will linger in our hearts forever. I hope that the family can find comfort in the fact that he is now resting in peace, and watching over us from Heaven. 06/01/2011 Posted by: Mike Jones Delores, Michelle and April, I have been in a state of disbelief since I heard about Raymond's passing yesterday. We go back to Jr. High, when he and I became friends in the 7th grade. I have great memories of hanging out, going to the pool and movies, and spending nights at the home of Big Raymond, Lottie, Raymond and Michael.... and from then on, I have countless great memories of Raymond (and you, Delores) that stretch out over 4+ decades. Raymond was truly someone loved by anyone and everyone who came to know him. He touched so many lives in a positive way and one of those rare people who possessed the ability to bring a smile to anyone's face - seemingly without even trying. Raymond is among the very small group of truly "real" and "genuine" people I've known in my life. I, along with all his "69" classmates - and all who knew him, will miss him greatly. I am honored to have had him as a good and true friend. Please know that you have my deepest sympathies, and that you are all in my prayers. MJ 06/01/2011 Posted by: RICHARD AND SUSAN BLAKE We are so sorry to hear about your loss. We always enjoyed our visits at the National Bank of Cambridge while Raymond worked there. Our thoughts are with you and your girls. 06/01/2011 Posted by: Katie & Eddie Lloyd Delores, We are so sorry to hear about Raymond. We remember all the Friday nights we came to your house on Race Street so many years ago. We think of you 2 every time we ride by your old house. 06/01/2011 Posted by: Suzanne Hunteman Delores, Michelle & April, So sadden to hear of your loss. Raymond was a great person and will be missed by all. Suzanne & Charly Hunteman 05/31/2011 Posted by: sharon huether I knew Raymond for years, from the National Bank of Cambridge, he was such a wonderful, man. And many times when I came in he gave me loans, and I remember one time when I had problems paying the mortage on my home he refuse to take the keys, and help me so much. He will be dearly missed. And now he is at home with the Lord. You are all in my prayers in this time of sadness. 05/31/2011 Posted by: David & Scottie Marshall Delores, Michelle and April, We are so sorry for your loss. God has taken one of the best. Faith consists in believing when it is beyond the power of reason to believe. Although it's difficult today to see beyond the sorrow, may looking back in memory help comfort all of you today and the days to come. His spirit will be kept alive with the many wonderful memories that your family and his friends have. God bless you all and God bless Raymond. He will be missed by many.
