Obituary for Raymond John Cavallaro

Cavallaro, Raymond John
1924 - 2019
On Saturday, January 5, 2019, Raymond John Cavallaro found eternal peace as he entered Paradise at the age of 94. Predeceased by his wife of 69 years, Theresa, Raymond is now reunited with the love of his life. Raymond’s greatest legacy is his family, who remembers him as a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle, and brother.

Raymond was born in 1924 as the fourth of seven children to James and Mary Rose in Anmoore, WV. He was raised in a loving, faith-filled, hardworking Italian family. At the age of 20, he moved to Detroit, Michigan, where he met and soon thereafter married Terry. He is survived by their three children, Dennis (Maria) Cavallaro, Nancy (Gary) Winkler, and Janice (Dennis) McGovern.; seven grandchildren, David (Julie) Cavallaro, Christopher (Kerri) Winkler, Matthew (Kim) Winkler, Dana Gallant, Kimberly (Paul) Wattii, Ashley Grimaldi, Julia (Thomas) Bakker, ten great-grandchildren, and his sisters Angelina and Louise. Raymond was a resident of Royal Oak, Bloomfield Hills, and at the time of his decease, Rochester Hills, where he enjoyed life to the fullest in his last six months at Oakmont Independent Living.

As an entrepreneur, he founded several businesses, most notably Saturn Industries. With his strong work ethic, he led by example his children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews – all of whom share stories of his encouragement and support. He embraced life fully, seeing God’s goodness in everything around him and was a dedicated and charitable member of his church. He and Terry loved to open their home to family and friends, especially for their annual Christmas parties. They spent their winters in Sarasota, enjoying the sunshine, friends and family, golfing, and entertaining.

Throughout his life, Raymond made friends everywhere he went: his broad smile; his love of God, people, animals, and nature; and his genuine interest in everyone he met endeared him to all. He treasured his family and nurtured them always with his kindness, dedication, and wisdom.

Friends may visit at Lynch & Sons Funeral Home, 1368 N. Crooks Road (between 14-15 Mile Rds.) Sunday, January 13, 2-7pm. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Hugo of the Hills Stone Chapel, 2215 Opdyke Road, Bloomfield Hills, Monday, January 14th at 11am. Friends may visit beginning at 10:30am.
