Raymond is survived by his beloved wife of 40 years, Melissa Roberts; son, Raymond Paul Roberts of Dickinson; grandson, Brayden Paul Roberts of Dickinson; brother, Royce Wayne Roberts of Manvel and numerous nieces and nephews.
He started his work career by going to trade school and was a carpenter at Bechtel Construction for ten years. He later became an operator at Amoco Chemical in Texas City then completed his operator career at DuPont in Laporte, Texas until he became fully disabled in 2013 with Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis.
Raymond was a gentle soul, a hardworking man and devoted to his family. Before he became disabled, he had a passion for woodworking. He was very talented at his craft and made beautiful, exquisite pieces that were admired by everyone. Raymond also loved cooking and gardening. He had a green thumb and loved to grow his own vegetables and share them with his family, friends, and co-workers. He was jokingly known as the "King of Tomatoes". Raymond was an avid animal lover and enjoyed spending time with all his beloved pets which presently was his dog, Gabby.
