From being a very close friend of WRW founders Robert and Debbie and latterly to his role as a Director, Raymond brought a sense of passion for life which was rarely rivalled.
His rugby achievements are legendary as a Scarlet, Welsh International and as British and Irish Lion and his sincerity and compassion will never be forgotten.
