Raymond Eugene Bianco, beloved son, brother, father, cousin, nephew, United States Marine and friend
passed from this life into Valhalla on July 2, 2021.
Born June 13, 1994, Raymond spent his childhood in Middlehope at the Bianco family compound. He enjoyed spending time with his family, from weekly Sunday dinners to shenanigans with his cousins
like duct taping pillows to themselves and riding "homemade go carts" down the hill. He also loved hosting friends to play Guitar Hero in the basement (which he always won) and various sports, even ones they created like Super Mega Epic Ball, in the front yard.
After high school, he followed his strong sense of service of others to the United States Marine Corps. He proudly served his country in Afghanistan with the Walking Dead, where he found brothers with whom he bonded for life. His family and friends from all backgrounds and experiences were his entire world and he would gladly give you the shirt off his back or even give up his own life to save yours. He always brought humor to everyone's life with his incredible vocabulary and ability to push the limits with quick wit or long form narratives.
Raymond is predeceased by grandparents John and Maria Repke. He is survived by his grandparents Raymond and Beth Bianco, his parents Raymond Bianco and Sharon Repke, and his son Levi Bianco. He leaves behind two brothers Ross and Robert and too many Marine Corps brothers to list. The uncles, aunts, cousins and friends are numerous and all mourn the loss of a compassionate, caring and gentle soul.
