In memory of
Raymond McCullum Ronquillo Jr.
Raymond McCullum Ronquillo, Jr., went home peacefully to be with the Lord on Friday, July 24, 2020 at the age of 81. Born in New Orleans, Raymond was a humble man for whom God and family were everything. He was a 1956 graduate of De La Salle High School where he was a Hall of Fame athlete. He continued his education and earned his degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Southwestern Louisiana, now known as the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, earning letters in football and track and field. Raymond proudly served his country in the US ARMY. A brilliant engineer, he had the honor of serving on an engineering and design team with Boeing where he helped design and construct the first lunar rover to travel the moon. His name is located in the Smithsonian Institute of Space, on the moon, the Seattle Space Needle, the Kennedy Space Center, and forever etched on our hearts. Above all else, Raymond's passion was his family. He was known to proudly travel the world supporting their endeavors and he never missed a game or activity of any kind that his kids or grandkids participated in. A proud, loving, and caring husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend, he was a man of deep faith who will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. He is preceded in death by his grandson, Angel Williams; his loving parents, Raymond McCullum Ronquillo, Sr. and Marjorie Ose' Ronquillo; and his brother, John Patrick Ronquillo. He is the beloved husband of 59 years of Judith Babin Ronquillo. He is the loving father of MaryTheresa Anne ""Do-Bee"" Plaisance (Scott), Anna Marie Rawle (Mike), Beth Ann Williams (Medgar), Raymond McCullum Ronquillo, III, and Rene Monique Ronquillo.
