Raymond Bishop, Sr. Obituary

 ´╗┐Raymond Dean Bishop Sr. Age 85, loving husband and father passed away peacefully surrounded by family on January 30, 2024.
He was born in Burlington NJ on June 11, 1938 to the late Kenneth and Mary (Wikowski) Bishop. He is survived by his wife of 65 years, Arleen (Whelan) Bishop and his 4 children; Raymond Bishop Jr., Michael Bishop, John (Christine) Bishop and Krisanne (Paul)Newman. Grandchildren; Alyssa, Paul, Carley, Casey, Katie, Lauren, Emily, Heather and 4 great grandchildren. Siblings; Barbara Wilmerton, Kenneth Bishop, Les Bishop and predeceased by Patricia Rua. All of these he loved so deeply.
Raymond was employed by Occidental Chemical corporation for 34 years. He was a recipient of the “Good Samaritan Award” by his employer for saving the life of a child. He was a devoted member of Jesus the Good Shepherd Parish in Beverly NJ. He accepted Christ in his life at the age of 40 and received all his sacraments. His generosity and kindness had no limits, giving charitable contributions to many organizations and helping others.
Raymond was the middle child of 5 children. He loved all his siblings dearly and loved spending time with them and their families. He had many hobbies which always included his family, creating many special memories from going on jeep rallies in the Pine Barrens , racing his 1953 Willys jeep in sand drag races at Atco raceway, to fishing, hunting and boating. He loved doing yard work and took pride in maintaining his home meticulously.  The times he cherished most were spending time with his wife Arleen, taking trips to Cape May and Atlantic City or just sitting under the carport sipping homemade ice tea and talking.
Even though Raymond has passed on to be with our Lord, he is always and forever in our hearts. We all await the day to be reunited with him.
