Raymond Joseph Sehr was born February 2, 1932 to Benedict and Clara (Reiniger) Sehr. He was united in marriage to Lois Clark in August of 1951 at Worthington. Their union was blessed with 4 children. Raymond worked most of his career at American Artstone. After 30 years there, he worked at 3M for 4 years, then began to work independently and cleaned businesses with Lois.

Raymond enjoyed life. He was often found fishing, growing flowers, or simply spending time outdoors. He also loved the annual bus trips he and Lois would take together and getting to spend time with his children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren. He will be dearly missed by those that knew him. Blessed be his memory.
