Raymond was born March 3, 1931, east of Dibble, OK, to John Howard and Flora (Cooper) Staggs. He entered into eternal rest on Sunday, June 27, 2021, in Norman, OK, at the age of 90 years, 3 months and 24 days. Raymond and the former Ms. Helen Vinson were married on April 21, 1953, in Oklahoma City. They were blessed with 67 years of marriage prior to Helen’s passing on June 18, 2020. From this union were born three children, Steve, Connie and Stan.

Raymond grew up in the Dibble area. He served in the United States Army from the spring of 1953 until he was Honorably discharged in 1955. Raymond spent 25 years working in maintenance, and any other areas needed, for the Dibble Public School System. In the earlier years of their marriage, Raymond served as a pastor, pastoring in several churches. He was also instrumental in forming the Midway Southern Baptist Church, where soon after opening, he became the pastor. In his spare time, he enjoyed tending to his farm, gardening, raising cattle and driving his tractor. Raymond loved his family, his church family and his friends. He will be deeply missed by them all.
