Raymond E. Raulonis

Mr. Raymond E. Raulonis, 69, died Thursday, January 10, 2019 in the John F. Kennedy Medical Center in Edison, New Jersey.

Family and friends are invited to the visitation in the Kowalski Funeral Home, 515 Roselle Street, Linden on Monday, January 14th. from 4:00-8:00PM.  On Tuesday, January 15th., from 8:30-9:00AM everyone will gather in the funeral home where a prayer service will be held at 9:00AM, followed by the funeral mass to be offered in the St. Theresa of the Child Jesus R.C. Church, Linden at 10:00AM.  The prayers of committal will precede his burial in the family plot in St. Gertrude Cemetery in Colonia, New Jersey.

Raymond, the son of the late Jennie E. Sot Raulonis (2000) and the late John P. Raulonis (2007), was born in Linden, New Jersey.  He has resided in Scotch Plains, New Jersey since 2002.

Raymond, as a 7th. grade student at St. Theresa’s Grammar School in Linden, started a petition to clean up the highly polluted Arthur Kill Waterways.  In 1963, he received correspondence from the Federal Government in Washington, DC, as well as, from the State of New Jersey Environmental Agency.  They both were interested in speaking to Raymond regarding his investigation.  This was quite a coup for such a young man, who was obviously on a meaningful mission to promote clean water for healthy aquatic wildlife and vegetation.  Later in life, Raymond went on to serve his country in the U.S. Air Force, during the Vietnam War.

In addition to his deceased parents, Raymond was also predeceased by his sister, Caroline F. Raulonis in 1995.

Raymond is survived by his four cousins; June E. Repmann, James “Jimmy” Repmann, Edward Sot and his wife, Carolyn and Joan Linkus; Eula Andrews, his caregiver for over twenty years and his friends at the Veterans Group Home in Scotch Plains, New Jersey.
