  • Raymond Frederick Raymonda, age 76, formerly of Herkimer, passed away peacefully on Saturday, Dec. 22, 2012 in the Tampa Veterans Administration Hospital, Tampa.
    He was born on May 8, 1936, in Herkimer, son of the late Francis and Helen Smith Raymonda. Ray was raised in Herkimer and graduated from Herkimer High School with the class of 1954. On Jan. 12, 1955, he enlisted in the United States Navy where he served in Guam. He was honorably discharged on Dec. 12, 1958, attaining the rank of RM3. Mr. Raymonda was married to the former Dorothy Ade, who preceded him in death on Feb. 6, 2002. For many years he worked as an assembler for the Remington Arms Company in Ilion, retiring in 1989.
    Ray took much pride in serving his country with his military service and was a member of Crowley-Barnum American Legion Post No. 25, Mohawk, where he was a past commander. While living in this area, he was a member of Mohawk Lodge No. 276, Free and Accepted Masons. To his many friends, Ray will always be remembered as good natured man who loved his family especially his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He will be sorely missed.
    Surviving him are two daughters, Sandra Spisak of New Haven, Ky., and Ruth Bond Dushar and husband, Wes, of Richfield Springs; four sons, Anthony Terino, of Frankfort, James Terino and wife, Linda, Chris Terino and wife, Sherry, and David Terino and wife, Michelle, all of Tampa; one sister, Eleanor Weber, of Herkimer; fourteen grandchildren; many great-grandchildren; several nieces, nephews and cousins. Besides his parents and wife, Dorothy, he was preceded in death by one brother, Edward Raymond; and a sister, Carol Raymonda.
    Calling hours for Mr. Raymonda will be on Monday from 5 until 7 pm. at Fenner Funeral Home Inc., 115 Court St., Herkimer. Funeral service will be on Tuesday, Jan. 1, at 2 p.m. at the funeral home. The Very Reverend Mark Cunningham, pastor of Saint Francis de Sales Church, Herkimer, will officiate. Interment with military honors will take place later this spring in Calvary Cemetery, Herkimer.
