Obituary

Mr. Raymond Lee Senior, 74, went home to be with his Lord and Savior early Sunday morning, January 16, 2022 at Moses H. Cone Memorial Hospital.

Funeral service will be held at 2:00 pm on Wednesday, January 19, 2022 at George Brothers Funeral Service with Pastor Joey Baynes officiating.  Burial will follow at the Thompson Family Cemetery in Pleasant Garden.

Raymond was a real family man who loved technology and built computers. He worked continuously with exceptional dedication to take care of his family. He was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 1997, at the age of 49. It was clear though that Parkinson’s was not going to stop him from living. He continued to press on and worked full time another 12 years! He was a strong man in the eyes of those who knew him. When he was working, his priority was to come home from work and start by reading the Bible. Whether he knew it or not his family was watching as he led by example. He showed what was important, and that was a relationship with Jesus Christ. There were many “new normals” to adjust to over the years but he always kept his drive to go go go even if it was just to ride to get a jamocha shake from Arby’s. He had the best sense of humor, and his laugh was contagious! His family never doubted his love for them because he showed it in so many ways!

Raymond and Carol’s children want to honor their mother by saying, “She is a true woman of God and was a selfless caregiver for dad. When she vowed “in sickness and in health” 47 years ago she truly meant it. She kept that promise through her own health struggles. She cared for dad with grace, strength and patience. She pushed herself beyond her limits and relied on Jesus Christ for her strength. We are so incredibly blessed to call her mom. We want her to know how proud of her we are and what an amazing woman she is!”

Even though Raymond was a quiet man to most, to his family he was the best husband and father they could have had and has left his family with many priceless memories. The family welcomes your prayers and love during this time.

He was preceded in death by his parents, William and Wilma Thompson Senior.

Mr. Senior is survived by his wife of 47 years, Carol Senior; daughter, Deborah Goldston (Donnie Jr.); son, Johnathan Senior (Emily); son, Brian Senior (Brittany); granddaughter, Leah Goldston; as well as excitedly awaiting the birth of his second grandchild; brother, William R. "Bill" Senior; as well as many other family members and friends whom he loved.

The family will receive friends from 1:00-2:00 pm at George Brothers Funeral Service prior to the service.
