Obituary for Raymond A. Wilkins

Raymond Aaron Wilkins passed away in his home on July 3, 2018 at the age of 79. Raymond was born March 4, 1939, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Raymond was preceded in death by his two children, RaeLynn and Robert. Raymond is survived by his wife, Bobbie; Brother and Sister-in-laws, Gene Wood, Barbara Martin, Houston Wood Jr, Robert Wood, Carolyn Larkin, Rodney Wood, Derryl Wood, and Terry Nash; children, Catherine Brackett, Mike Allen and wife, Rebecca Allen, Lisa Albers and husband, Rodney Albers, Jerry Allen, and Vicky; grandchildren, Aaron Utsler and wife, Kezie Utsler, Robert Wilkins, Thomas Wilkins, Blake Allen, Erin Hill and husband Reggie Hill, Marlee Allen, David Smith and wife Jennifer Smith, and Gerald Smith, Dusty Allen and Katie, Cody Allen and wife Yaulanda Allen, and numerous great-grandchildren.

Papa Raymond, as he is known to his loved ones, was the quiet constant in the family. His affable, shy manner was matched only by his sense of humor. He was master of the “grandpa” jokes. Raymond’s steadfast and even-tempered demeanor gave him an air of coolness reminiscent of his hero - the Cowboy.

Like his Western idol, Raymond exuded a silent strength and humility. His life provided a living example of how men should act. His example served as an inspiration to his children and grandchildren - all of which looked to him for guidance when needed and for calm when required. Raymond was the rock on which his family was built.

Raymond was so loved and will be greatly missed.
