- About Us
Raymond “Ray” Deffes, Sr of Folsom, LA left this earth on Wednesday, September 11, 2019. Born to Romain (RJ) and Gloria, May 14, 1960 in Albany GA, a Marine Corps Captain’s beautiful boy. Ray, his sister and mother would travel the world following their Marine they dearly called Dad, eventually settling back to home, Chalmette LA. Ray grew up to become one of the finest examples of a human being: honest, loyal and ever loving. He always made friends no matter where he went. He fought hard against his heart disease as he wanted so badly to “just enjoy life with his family”; a man who loved life for all that it was. Left to cherish his memory are his devoted wife Brandy; two wonderful sons Raymond (Ashley) and Dustin (Fallon) and three grandchildren; sister Peggy (Jeff) Gunther; Mother in law Jo Lewis and sister in law Summer Alexander; two nephews and two nieces; as well as many from the Marine Corps family. Services will be private with a future date for a celebration of his amazing life. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the American Heart Association. “It will never be goodbye, but until we meet again”.
