Obituary for William Raymond

William Raymond "Willie"was born on November 22, 1955 in Newark, New Jersey to the late Sonny Jenkins and Annie Davis. He was the third of five children. William attended the Linden Public School system where he played on the varsity football team. He lived most of his life in Linden.

Willie was an avid chess player and taught his whole family, including extended family members how to play.

In 1973, Willie was blessed with one daughter, Tamecka (Clark) McKay with the late Sherrel (Clark) Belcher. Shortly after, he had an unfortunate accident that caused him to be disabled but he lived his life to the fullest. Although legally disabled, Willie worked as a Construction Worker for many years. During his time with the late Sharon Spencer, he was a loving father to their son, Altron Spencer.

He was a former member of White Rock Baptist Church in Linden where he gave his life to Jesus Christ.

Willie later met Candice Raymond.

On Sunday, January 14, 2018, William Raymond transitioned into eternal rest at Alaris Health at Riverton Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Rahway, New Jersey.

Willie leaves to cherish precious memories, his dear daughter, Tamecka McKay (Earl); devoted sister and brothers: Patricia Willis, Lamont Raymond (Barbara), Gerald Raymond and Paul Raymond (Towana); two grandchildren: Brianna and Brandon McKay; nephews, nieces, and a host of dear relatives and friends.

His smile, positive, loving and playful nature will be missed by all who knew him, especially his favorite two sayings: “You know what I’m saying” and “Don’t Worry, Be Happy.”
