Raymon always told everyone he had to work hard all his life. His family moved to Morton, Texas while he was still a young boy. He and his older brother Calvin would have to get up early every morning to milk four cows apiece before catching the school bus. Then every afternoon they would have to milk the cows after school. When he was just nineteen he managed his father's farm with hired help. He married and had three daughters during this time. In the early 60's he moved to Breckenridge, Texas. He worked for the gas company for a couple of years before operating a Texaco gas station there. He went to work for Del-Tex Candy Company out of San Angelo. He not only carried candies, he sold numerous items such as specialty items like jewelry. His territory surrounded the Breckenridge area. In 1969 he transferred to Abilene and covered routes around this area. During his run at one of his stops one day, he was offered the position of owning and operating the Texaco Station in Tye, Texas. He seized the opportunity and ran the station for 30 years. He retired at 70.
He had several motorcycles during his lifetime. He rode all around the country for many years. He loved riding because it helped him relax from working so hard all his life. He also owned a Cessna 150 for a few years. Flying it as often as he could.
