Traveling, hiking, camping, fishing, hunting, listening to music, cooking and eating, watching movies were few of ‘Ray’ Raymund’s joys in life. Raymund Nonatus Galang was born April 20, 1966, and recently celebrated his 57th birthday. His birthplace was in Mandaluyong, Philippines, born to Lilia and Gene Galang both deceased.
Ray went home to glory on August 9, 2023 while working in Alaska Glacier Seafood, inc. Juneau Alaska. His faith was important to Ray. His love for his Savior gave him joy and hope even in the darkest time while ongoing his cancer diagnosis and treatment. He was an avid member of the World Harvest Church in Houston, Texas.
He graduated with a bachelor's degree in Business Administration from the University of the East in 1994. Ray was a bachelor which suited his lifestyle of travelling. Living on and off as a seasonal worker for fishing canning (seafood) companies, the last 10+ years were spent feeding his love for nature in Dutch Harbor, Nederland's and Juneau, Alaska.
Ray is a traveler that explored various places. He grew up in San Juan, Philippines, but his love for family brought him to Houston, Glendale, Toronto, Indiana, New York and many more. He doted on all his nephews and nieces by being present at every milestone of their lives. He loved spending time with family and made sure to record every memory through photographs and videos. He was charming, friendly, and fun-loving that anyone he just met would think they've known him for years. Loved and well respected by his peers, family, and friends, he remains an inspiration for his resilience and bravery for overcoming cancer with grace and patience.
He is survived by his 7 siblings Sylvia and Brian Raymond (Anaheim, California); Emmanuel Galang (Los Angeles, California), Grace and Noel Dela Cruz (Mississauga, Canada); Joy and Dado Espinosa (Houston, Texas); Marisol and Richard Ricamonte (Brooklyn, New York); Ruth and Jeffrey Mashak (La Porte, Indiana); and Junefaith and Brian Ismagil (Hungtington Beach, California), and by many nieces and nephews: John, Jason/Sheena (Orson,Iris), Carlo, Joel, Randell, Christine, Candice, Andre, Luke, Lia, and Benjamin.
Ray was preceded in death by both maternal and paternal grandparents and his parents, Lilia and Gene Galang. His remains will be transported from Juneau to Glendale, California where he will be laid to rest.
A funeral service will be held in Forest Lawn Glendale Memorial on September 1, 2023 at 10:00 am.
We ask for any donation to be made to Raymund's GoFundMe to help with his funeral and transport of his remains to his final resting place.
