Raymond Summers

BRAIDWOOD-Raymond C. Summers (Ray), 75, of Braidwood passed away Saturday, Dec. 29, 2012 at Iroquois Medical Center in Watseka, IL after a brief illness.

Ray was born May 3, 1937 and was raised in Joliet, but moved to the Braidwood/Wilmington area in 1977. He was an active member of Carpenters Local 174 for many years and a long time employee of Atlas Drywall Company. Ray was an avid bowler, great pool shooter and loved table games. He was a giving person who cared deeply for those who had not been as fortunate as he.

He is survived by his loving wife, Michelle (Mike) and a large number of friends who are his extended family. He will be sadly missed by all of us.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Herman and Catherine; his dear friends: Tony Vilt, Wayne Bishop, Russ Girot, Kenny Floyd, Ed Sullivan (Sully), Bob Cartwright and several older siblings.

Arrangements for a local gathering of his friends is in progress.
