Obituary

Norbert A. Raymond, 95, of East Providence, RI, passed away peacefully at home Monday, March 14, 2022. He was the beloved husband of Helen (Ciskowski) Raymond. They had been happily married for over 57 years.

Born in New Bedford, MA, a son of the late Donat and Marie Anne (Begin) Raymond, he had lived in Seekonk, in the house that he built, for 56 years before moving to East Providence. Designing and building his home was a high school yearbook goal accomplished.

A proud graduate of New Bedford Vocational Technical High School, Navy veteran, and member of LeFoyer Club, he had been a master carpenter for Ferland Corporation for 21 years before becoming self-employed and working until he was 87 years old. When he wasn't working or designing and building furniture, he could be found in his prolific vegetable garden, fishing, hunting, or traveling by RV across the US and Canada with his wife and daughter. Another love of his was good home cooking, especially using those garden veggies. Probably one of the reasons Norbert gave his son-in-law his blessing was because he complemented his brigade of chefs along with his wife and daughter. Known for his sweet tooth, you would hear him say often, "A good meal isn't complete without dessert."

Besides his wife, he leaves his daughter, Andrea Corbett and her husband Quinn, of Pawtucket, his brother, Maurice Raymond and his wife Beatty, of Lakeland, FL, his sister-in-law, Ann Coska, of West Roxbury, MA, and numerous nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews. He was the brother of the late Gerard and Rolande Raymond and Laurent and Lucie Raymond.

If desired, gifts in his memory to St. Vincent de Paul Society c/o Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Church, 385 Central Ave. Seekonk, MA 02771 or Friends of Friends Community Services Inc., 24 Pleasant St. Seekonk, MA 02771 would be appreciated.
