Loving and Beautiful Memories of Raymond Wilson
Don’t think of me as gone away, my journey’s just begun, Life holds so many facets this earth is only one!
On Thursday, February 4, 2021, the seals were broken and the book of life was opened. Raymond Wilson, son of the late Shirley Wilson Harris and late Charlie Wilson, was born on March 7, 1949 in Brooklyn, New York. He entered into eternal rest on Thursday, February 4, 2021 in Brooklyn at Brooklyn Hospital.
Raymond received his high school diploma from Samuel J. Tilden High School in Brooklyn, New York. Upon completing his graduation, he worked at the Brooklyn Navy Yard doing maintenance work for a number of years.
Upon leaving Brooklyn, he moved to Connecticut and worked at Day Top as Director. He later moved back to Brooklyn, New York and worked at Time Warner Cable Television as a service technician until he retired. He enrolled in culinary school in New York City and graduated – he never stopped cooking. He loved music, singing and dancing. While he would be cooking, he would be dancing and singing like he was a professional singer or dancer.
Raymond accepted Christ at an early age. He was a Catholic who feared, worshiped, and loved God. When he was not able to read the bible, he would enjoy listening to it.
Raymond always kept himself busy. He had a business making t-shirts, selling paintings/portraits on clothes, and made t-shirts especially for our family reunion. When his mother’s health started declining, Raymond was faithful to her. Each morning, he was there to cook her breakfast, provide care, and do whatever necessary to make her day better.
Raymond was a kind and generous person who would give you the shirt off his back. He freely gave his time, was easy to talk to, and was a good listener.
My Mother would say: Different paths along the way, we all are meant to learn somethings, but never meant to stay. Our destination is a place far greater than we know, for some the Journey’s quicker; for some the Journey’s slow and when the Journey’s finally ends, we’ll claim a great reward and find an everlasting peace, together with the Lord!
I have fought a good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith (2 Timothy 4:7), well Done Thy Good and Faithful Servant rest in PEACE Raymond your Journey’s over!
Raymond is preceded in death by his Mother and Father; he leaves to cherish his memories; 4 Sons, 3 Daughters-in-law, 3 Brothers, 3 Sisters, 1 Sister in-law, 6 Granddaughters, 1 Grandson; and a host of Aunts, Uncles, Nieces, Nephews, Cousins, other relatives and friends who will dearly miss him.
