In loving memory of Raymond Robert Rath
August 16, 1924 ~ March 22, 2019
Our beloved Dad passed away peacefully March 22, 2019. He is survived by his grieving children Mike (Carolyn), Patti (Cornell), Bill (Sherry), Tony (Theresa), Marthe (Ricky), Rebecca (Knut), many grandchildren and great-grandchildren, all who loved him dearly and will miss him.
Dad had a great love of nature and instilled that in his children and grandchildren. He retired from the Air Force after 20 years and then worked in the Aeronautical Division of Honeywell. After his retirement from Honeywell, he sailed for several years. He was a beekeeper, master gardener, sailor, canoer and loving father. Nothing gave him greater pleasure than taking long walks in what is now the William Rath Wildlife Management Area in Bruno, Minnesota.
He will be dearly missed by his family and all who knew him.
