LASALLE, ILL./STOUGHTON - Raymond N. King, age 62, passed away on Monday, Nov. 28, 2016, at home surrounded by his family.
He was born on Dec. 20, 1953, the son of Edward and Lillian King. Raymond graduated from Roosevelt College in Galesberg, Ill., with a Master's Degree. He was an avid Chicago Bears and Chicago Cubs fan, but his family was his greatest pride and joy. Raymond will be remembered for his sense of humor and being a jokester.
He is survived by his wife, Sandy, of 36 years; children, LeAnn Tucker, Melissa (Jeff) Siefken and Augie King; grandchildren, Derek, Jenna and Brady Siefken and Rolan and Trygve King; father, Edward King; brothers, Ed and John King; sisters, Doris Neuhalfen, Dot Kierski and Betty Gonzalez; and many nieces and nephews. Raymond was preceded in death by his mother, Lillian; brothers, Bill, Larry, Bob and Jerry.
A special thank you to Agrace HospiceCare, especially Ben, who brought him so many dignified moments; and sister-in-law, Cheri Stevenson, who was an exceptional care taker.
In keeping with Ray's wishes, a private family service will be held at a later date.
