Salesman, dog lover, world-class angler, friend, Grandpa, Dad and Disciple of the Lord, Jesus Christ - Raymond Eugene Asbell wrote the final chapter to his storied 73 year life on Saturday, August 13th, with family and friends by his side in Springville, Utah.\n\nRaymond was born on December 15, 1942 in the deep south of Valdosta, Georgia and would often share his adventures of growing up in the swampland which included chasing away house visitors ranging from moccasin snakes to alligators. Raymond had a passion for life and found great joy in fishing, scouting, photography, church service and spending time with his family and friends. As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Raymond served valiantly in many responsible church positions and dedicated his life to serving the Lord. In 1986 Raymond was awarded the prestigious Silver Beaver Award, one of Scouting's highest honors.
