Raymond Anton McQueen

June 02, 1960 - September 30, 2009


Raymond Anton McQueen, aged 49, was killed on Wednesday morning as he rode to work on his motorcycle. Raymond’s greatest legacy was the family whom he left behind: Ramar, age 22, Jahmal, age 19, Karessa, age 17, Tarae, age 12, Elijah, age 10 and his wife Tami. Raymond is survived by his father, Lloyd McQueen of Jamaica, two brothers and seven sisters. He and his family have lived in Mission Viejo for the past eight years.

Raymond was born and raised in Jamaica and came to the United States when he was 18 years old where he served in the US Army for four years. He never abandoned his ties to Jamaica and was well known for his tall stature and knee-length locks. He was a beautiful man who embraced his life motto of ‘One Love.’ His passion was always towards the ‘underdogs’, those who were treated unfairly and who were hurting.

Being gifted with an artistic nature from the time he was a small boy in Jamaica, he loved to design furniture and clothing, draw and drum. He brought his talents with him to the garment industry where he worked for the past 25 years. In recent years he spent much of his free time working on and riding his motorcycles.

Services to celebrate Raymond’s life will be held on Friday, October 9th, at 10:00am at the Laguna Hills Community Center, 25555 Alicia Parkway, Laguna Hills. There will be a viewing on Thursday, October 8th, 7:00pm-9:00pm at O’Connor Mortuary, 25301 Alicia Parkway, Laguna Hills.

  1. Weeping may endure for a night but Joy real Joy cometh in the morning….

    I could say a whole lot more but for those that knew Ray if you understand the above statement by itself it brings peace & says all one needs to know, show your Love & support to the family they will need it in the days to come –

    Ashes to Ashes dust to dust – the way he would have quoted it – Taken from thee Word….

  2. Tami, Ramar, Jahmal, Kareesa, Tarae and Elijah:
    Our hearts are breaking for all of you. You are our family and we will ALWAYS be here for you. We loved Raymond and will do our part to keep his memory alive for you. Ian lost a brother, Jordan, Maiya, Reyna and Aasha lost a beloved uncle and I lost a brother-in-law.
    Our lives will be less wtihout him
    Love to you…always….
    Stacey, Ian and the kids

  3. Tami
    Words can never express how sorry we are for your loss but please remember your family loves you and the kids so very much and we will all miss Raymond. His beautiful smile, his infectious laugh and those great big hugs of his were always inviting and full of love. He was and will always be a special part of our family. He will be dearly missed by us all. Be strong baby sister and please know we are here for you and the kids. We love you all so very much. And together as family we’ll get through this one day at a time. We’ll be back on Thursday.

  4. I loved hanging out with my Uncle Raymond. He came to our spring concert, taught my little sister to draw and let me use his iPhone! And when he came to visit us in Santa Cruz, he always made us feel like he loved us. Tarae, Elijah and Ramar, I’ll see you on Wednesday. I can’t wait to meet you Jahmal, Daddy says you’re 6’6″ and can windmill dunk! Love, Jordan

  5. Tami,
    Words cannot convey my sadness. He was larger than life to me with a kind heart and spirit. Priscella, daddy, and I will be there soon.
