Raymond Lee Easton, 83, died peacefully in his sleep at Haven Health Center, Sunday November 12th 2023. Ray was born in Baldwin Park, CA. The 2nd child of Herman Herbert Easton and Jessie Pearl (Luckfield) Easton. He grew up in San Diego, graduating from Chula Vista High School in 1958. He married Dorothy (Driscoll) Easton in 1965. In 1979 he earned an Associate of Science in Biomedical Technology from Grossmont College.

Ray joined the US Army in April 1960 as a private, rising to the rank of Sergeant First Class and retiring from active duty in 1985. After a short retirement, he began working as a Civilian for the US Army and continued as a Civilian employee until May 2010 at age 70. Having served two active-duty assignments at Ft Huachuca, he returned as a civilian employee in the late 90’s and lived in Sierra Vista until his passing. Ray was an active member of the Post Chapel and served in various volunteer capacities for more than 20 years and loved his church family.

He was preceded in death by his parents and two brothers, Herbert James Easton, and Danny Robert Easton. He is survived by ex-wife Dorothy (Driscoll) Easton, two children Robert Lee Easton and Sharon Lynette Baxter, three (practically perfect) grandchildren: Kirk Lee Easton, Kelsey Jo Easton, and Carina Pearl Easton.
