Raymond worked at Carpenter Steel until 1969 and in 1970 he began working at his true calling in life as a carpenter. His talent and artistry can be found throughout the North Pocono region, from the restoration of his daughter's historic home built in 1856 to the many woodworking pieces found in St. Rita's Church in Gouldsboro.

Raymond was an active member of St. Rita's Church in Gouldsboro, where he was an usher and served on the maintenance committee. He also coached Little League both in New Jersey and Pennsylvania and enjoyed being outdoors, especially fishing.
