  • I was so saddened to hear of your loss and can only imagine the grief you are experiencing. My thoughts and prayers are with you .

  • To the Litt Family: There are not enough words to express what the entire Litt family has meant to the Johnson Family over the years. We were just talking today that lifelong friendships are rare, but this was a friendship that has extended through three generations, first starting on Leedy Road outside of Fredericktown over 80 years ago. The love for driving big trucks was instilled in Jim & Raymond at a young age from their fathers. Between the four of them, LeRoy, Philip, Raymond & Jim, the road miles driven would be unfathomable to most. As Jim has often shared with Raymond – “It was our earthly fathers that taught us to drive, Raymond, but it has been our Heavenly Father that has kept us safe over all these miles.” Jim always looked forward to meeting Raymond for coffee, or a meal & a chat whenever & wherever their paths would meet on the road. Life will be much different in the years to come without Raymond’s, “Hey, Jim!” To the family – Our memories are something that death can never steal from us. We love you all. Please know how dear you are to our family & our prayers are most sincere in your behalf. . To Raymond – “See ya later!”

  • To Belinda andfamily, I am so very, very sorry to hear of the passing of Raymond. Praying for peace and the comfort of God’s arms surround you as you grieve.

  • Belinda and the Litt Family,
    Our hearts are breaking for you all. Words cannot express our shock and sadness. You will be in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Raymond will be missed.

  • Dear Belinda,
    We are saddened to hear of Raymond’s sudden passing. Hold tight to your happy memories together. May God be with you and help ease the pain of your loss.
    Warmest regards,
    Jan and Bob Burk

  • I am so sorry to hear of Raymond’s passing. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

  • So sorry for your loss !!! Hauled live stock with Raymond years ago 👍 Probably hadn’t seen him for 15 yr. But fate had us meet again at Waynesburg Pa. Seen big rig parked out back of Motel. I thought that has to be Raymond. Woke him up and he wanted to know who are you ??? I told him It’s Hippie ✅ He got up we talked for an hour or better. We decided to have breakfast in the morning. We talked for another hour both had to get going. I thought we would meet again sometime. Was talking about building a barn. Raymond was a great guy to work with & in a class of his own 👍🏁 It’s my privilege to know Raymond 👈 God Bless🙏

  • We are so very sorry for your loss. God be with you all and grant you peace and comfort as you remember Raymond and all the good times. Always, Morgan and Marla Schonauer Dague

  • To the Litt Family:
    Please accept my sincere sympathy for the passing of Raymond. It was during those few years that he farmed that I became acquainted with Raymond, and always enjoyed talking with him about the grain prices and markets.

  • Very sorry for your loss.
    Through Aunt Eleanor Burwell, Adeen and Tina I have always thought of the Litts as an extension of our Bunnell family. I remember going to Rustic Knolls with Aldeen and the girls for one of the Litt Reunions decades ago.
    May your precious memories bring comfort to your hurting hearts.
    Blessings,

  • To the entire Litt family,
    So saddened to hear of Raymond’s passing. Raymond was still at home when we last visited with your family.
    Occasionally came across him on the road over the years and talked about bull hauling.
    What a fine young man he had become.
    Sorry we can’t be there for you, as we are spending most of our time in Montana.
    Hold onto all the memories. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
    With sympathy,
    Dan and Cheryl

    I was so shocked to hear of Raymond’s passing and am so sorry for your loss. Raymond was such a sweet guy in High School, and I’m sure he was just as great in his adult years as a brother and husband. Condolences to you all.

  • To the entire Litt and Bishop Families:
    We are very sad to hear of Raymond’s passing. He was a good guy and always willing to help or give truthful advise. As a fellow trucker we had several CB radio conversations over the years when we would see each other on the road. The conversations would be short but they were always positive! If God has an air horn in Heaven, I’m sure Raymond will be pulling the cord! Our Prayers and Thoughts are lifted high for you’all.

  • We are so sorry to hear of Raymond’s passing. We like to express our deepest condolences to all of you. May God give you comfort and peace to give you strengh thru the difficult time. Along with friends and family to be there for you. Keep your memories you have close to your heart to cherish as an forever treasure. Speak of Raymond often to keep him close by.

  • Very sad to hear the news of Raymond’s passing. Our prayers go out to the family in this time of loss. Great memories of Raymond even though it was years ago.

  • Sooo sorry for your loss ❤️Can’t imagine your pain ! Please know u r in our thoughts & prayers 🙏❤️🙏. Kenny & Pamela Daughriety Sr.

  • I’m so sorry to here of this loss. Raymond was one of the best you could ever come across. We first met back in the early 80’s , I had just gotten my Aerodyne KW and he had just gotten his built, I will never forget the grin he had being parked beside him. I’m sure that’s the same grin God saw as Longhorn entered the gates of Heaven, Raymond was one of the greatest men I ever had the pleasure of knowing. May God be with the family and bestow His comfort on all, Raymond will be greatly missed.

  • Belinda and Family:

    We are so sorry to hear about Raymond. He was always willing to help anyone in a time of need and will be greatly missed. Our deepest thoughts and sympathies go out to you and your family.
