Obituary

Raymond Lewis French, of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, passed away May 2nd, 2019, at the age of 79. He was born July 3rd, 1939, in White Earth MN to Isaah and Angeline (Bigbear) French.

Raymond was always a hard worker, spending most of his working life as a tire installer. In his spare time, his passion was doing bead work.

He met Cecelia Hummingbird while in the U.S. Army in the early 1960's, married her, and raised a wonderful family with her until her passing in 1977.

One of the best neighbors we ever had. And his family are the nicest people you would ever want to meet. His daughter (Raylene) took such care of him & her family.  I know this is a sad time but at least he is not suffering anymore. God be with you all. We are so sorry for your loss.
