Christopher Allan Raimond

SUN PRAIRIE – Christopher Allan Raimond, died unexpectedly on Wednesday, June 25, 2014 at the age of 56. Chris died of complications of leukemia. He battled the disease for a long time, but he was determined to beat this disease.

He was born on May 22, 1958 to John and Delores Raimond. He graduated from Stoughton High School in 1976. Chris was a very private person and it was difficult for him to share his feelings with others. His greatest joy was when he was able in January 2014 to return to his job at the UW Medical Foundation as a courier. Chris spent his spare time working on old cars, trucks and boats. His friends state that he was a great mechanic. He was always willing to share his talents with anyone who needed help.

The family wishes to thank Chris’ close friends, Ken, Bill and Scot for being there for Chris during the ups and downs of his battle. We also wish to thank Dr. Walter Logo and his staff. Chris had great respect for the staff that cared for him.

Chris leaves behind two sisters, Linda (Bill) and Diane (Ed); a brother, John (Fran), and his step-mother, Pat; five nieces, Andrea, Jamie (Tim), Lisa, Karlie and Ashley; two nephews, Jaedon and Parker. He will also be missed by his aunts, Teresa and Vi; an uncle, Pat (Janice); and his many cousins.

He was preceded in death by his mother and father; both sets of grandparents (Tony and Provi Raimond and Angelo and Dorothy Catalino); his uncles John Brausen and Sam Raimond; and his aunt, Betty.

A Mass of Christian burial will be held at ST. MARY OF THE LAKE CATHOLIC CHURCH, 5460 Mary Lake Rd., Westport on Saturday, July 19, 2014 beginning at 11 a.m. Burial will follow in the church cemetery. Visitation will be at the church on Saturday from 10 a.m. until the time of Mass. There will be a light lunch to follow services. Because of Chris’ private nature, the family doesn’t know all his friends, so please come and share with his family, Chris’ unique life story.
