Born in Providence, he was embraced in heaven into the loving arms of his mother and father; Raymond P. and Agnes M. (Olson) Foley, he was a lifelong resident of Warwick. Over the years, Raymond worked for Rinaldi’s Bakery, CCRI, Gregg’s, Norwood Diner and Liz Claiborne. He also volunteered at Greenwich Bay Retirement Living Facility.

In 1991 he represented the State of Rhode Island in the Special Olympics International Games at The University of Notre Dame. In 2009 Raymond participated in the honor guard in Hyannis, MA at the funeral of Eunice Kennedy Shriver, the founder of Special Olympics. He also had occasion to be the Torch Bearer lighting the Olympic cauldron to open the games at URI. At the State Summers games at Hendricken this year he led the games by reciting the Olympic Oath, “Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt”.
