Raymond Meyer, 71, died Oct. 16 at Ascension All Saints Medical Center. Born in Racine on Nov. 8, 1946, he was the son of the late Leroy and Myrtle (Nee: Rosenberg), Meyer.

Raymond was a graduate of William Horlick High School. He was united in marriage to Barbara D. Eves on July 26, 1969, in Racine. Raymond retired from Wheaton Franciscan All Saints- managed care after 15years of service in 2012. Prior employment included: Gorton Machine, Massey Ferguson, InSinkErator, Farmers Insurance, and Furman Insurance.

Raymond enjoyed helping with the horse, sweeping and stepping and fetching, and feeding it Neiman Mints.

Raymond was a crossing guard for the Caledonia Conservancy Poker Ride every year until this year. He also participated in crossing guard duties for the Racine County Pony Club Hunter Pace and Jump Judge for the mini-event. Raymond loved shopping for cars both old and new. His next purchase was to be a little red Mercedes.
