Raymond Lovern, Rhodes, Jr., 84, of Charlotte Hall, MD departed this life on November 18, 2019 at University of Maryland Charles Regional Medical Center, LaPlata, MD. Raymond was born October 6, 1935, in Williamsburg, Pennsylvania. He was the son of the late Raymond Lovern Rhodes and Martha Naomi (Peck) Rhodes.
Raymond met and fell in love with his wife of over fifty-nine (59) years, Donna Rae (Brickley) Rhodes. Together they built a wonderful and loving marriage and they had two wonderful, and honorable sons, Raymond Lovern Rhodes, III and Randall Lee Rhodes.
Raymond was a caring husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather and brother who loved his family above all else. His world revolved around his family and spending time with them brought him great joy.
He spent his life working hard and supporting his family. He loved traveling with his family all over the USA. He started his painting and home improvement business from scratch. Raymond retired in 2001 and enjoyed his retirement with his wife. He loved working around his home and helping anyone who needed help.
Whether you knew him as Raymond, Dad, Poppy, RayRay, or Great-grandfather, you knew his commitment to his family. The legacy of honor, strength and hard-work he projected will be carried on and duplicated for generations. Raymond was a man of many attributes and left his family with many memories. He will be missed by many, but none as much as his family.
Along with his wife Donna, he is survived by his sons, Raymond Lovern Rhodes, III and fiancée Debbie Clayton of Charlotte Hall, MD, and Randall Lee Rhodes and wife Kim Rhodes, of King George, VA.; and two (2) granddaughters, Brittany Oliver and Rebecca Rhodes and four (4) great-grandchildren, Blake, Cole, Emily and Jace. He is also survived by his god-children, Penny and Tiffany (son, Bennett) and sister, Sandra Westendkircher of Winchester, VA; and several nieces and nephews.
