Robert A. "Rob" Raymond, II

June 16, 1974 ~ March 29, 2023 (age 48) 48 Years Old


Robert A. “Rob” Raymond, II, of North Smithfield, Rhode Island, passed away on March 29, 2023, at the Suncoast Hospice Care Center in Palm Harbor, Florida, with his Mom by his side.  His Dad passed away last May.  Rob fought a courageous battle with cancer.

Born in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, he was the son of Robert Alfred Raymond, Sr. and Kathy (Tancrell) Raymond.  He attended North Smithfield High School and the University of Rhode Island.  He also attended Truck Driver School and obtained his CDL license.  Rob worked as a bartender then later became a carpenter and was a member of the North Atlantic Carpenters Union.  He also worked with his Dad training and grooming Thoroughbred horses and raced at Tampa Bay Downs and Delaware Park.

Rob was a longtime Ford truck enthusiast, he was an avid sports fan, enjoyed boating and fishing, playing cards, and spending time with family and friends.  He took after his Dad with his story telling and jokes and making people laugh.

Rob is survived by his mother, Kathy, his children Robert A. Raymond, III, Ethan J. Burt, and Haley D. Raymond, aunt Gail Beland, uncles Alfred Raymond and Paul Raymond, and cousins Nicholas Raymond, Jennifer Brien, Tara Raymond, Kaitlyn Decker, Amy Monroe, Douglas Beland, and Gene Tancrell.  He was predeceased by his father, Robert Alfred Raymond, Sr.
