Raymond Lee Maffett, Sr., 81, of Spring, TX and formerly of Mansfield, OH, passed away on Tuesday, March 16, 2021.
Raymond was born March 23, 1939 in Mansfield, the son of the late Dick and Evangeline (Merritt) Maffett. Raymond loved Jesus and God’s word and he loved sharing both with everyone he met. He was a part of 2 local churches during his years in Texas, Conroe First Assembly of God and Champion Life Centre. Raymond loved to serve by greeting at the doors of his church. He always had a smile and an encouraging word for everyone. He was known as “Mr. Ray” and was definitely loved by all!
Raymond had retired from General Motors in Ontario after 21.3 years of service and moved to Texas in 2011, when his wife was diagnosed with ALS. He was her primary caregiver until she passed in 2014. His favorite pastimes were going to bible study at his small group and eating dinner at his son and daughter-in-law’s home throughout the week. He absolutely loved desserts! He was a beloved dad, grandpa, great-grandpa, and father-in-law, who will be greatly missed by all.
