Raymond, Raym, Raymie, Ray Young was brought into this world on May 28, 1968, and was taken from it on September 22, 2021. He grew up in Elizabeth, Illinois and worked in Dubuque, Iowa as an electrician. Raym was smart, fun, entertaining, and loyal, all of which made him a fun friend and someone you could always count on to have your back. He made the best Manhattans and loved to sip his coffee on the porch. He was the greatest friend, would give you the shirt off his back, and always put others before himself. If you knew him, you were very blessed to have him in your life. He liked to laugh and enjoyed a wide circle of friends. He had many interests, including listening to music, four wheeling, snowmobiling and generally being outdoors. He loved kicking his feet up with his favorite lap cat, Jack. His highest priority and greatest joy was spending time with family. Andrea, Tori and Mark were his everything. He adored his great nephew, Jackson Raymond. He and his wife, Andrea, had recently relocated to Grimes, Iowa to be closer to family.

Raym was not someone comfortable with funeral gatherings; to respect his wishes, if you would like to honor his memory with a donation, his family respectfully requests donations to the American Diabetes Association or Safe Haven out of Elizabeth, IL.

Raym was the best husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend, there is no one better. He was utterly amazing and we are incredibly lucky to have had him in our lives. Our hearts are broken but we acknowledge a life well lived, and a person who was well loved. In his memory, please love your loved ones a little more, always give hugs, be kind, and listen to AC/DC.
