Ray H. Laudermilch, 88, passed away Thursday, August 13, 2020. He was born in Anderson, SC, and moved to Florida in 1960.
Ray was a devoted, loving husband to Faye Laudermilch, for 54 years, before her death in 2010. He will be missed by his four adoring children, Duane Laudermilch, Von (Jennifer) Laudermilch, Troy Laudermilch, and Sheri (Rich) Ray; and four grandchildren, Geoffrey, Aaron, Cory, and Meghan.
Ray started his military career upon graduating high school. He was active duty in the Navy for four years and fought in the Korean War. He earned his Bachelor’s in Engineering from Clemson University and a Master’s in Science from FIT. He worked as Director of Engineering at Patrick Air Force Base for a career spanning over 35 years. During this time, he was also active in the Army Reserves, engaging in The Gulf War and finally retiring as a CW4 officer in 1991.
Ray will be best remembered as a devoted Christian husband, father, and grandfather, who loved his family more than anything, second to God. He is now reunited in Heaven with the love of his life, Faye, and in the presence of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Due to COVID-19, there will be a private family graveside service at Florida Memorial Gardens in Rockledge, Florida.
