Raymond Leonard Ameigh

Hubert, NC - Raymond Leonard Ameigh of Hubert, North Carolina, formerly of Prattsburgh, New York, passed away on November 6, 2021 after a long battle with lung cancer. Raymond was born June 14, 1946 in Montour Falls, NY. He graduated from Watkins Glen High School in 1964 and SUNY Oswego in 1968. Raymond married the love of his life, Patricia Jackson Hill, on June 8, 1968. Raymond's first job was as an industrial arts teacher at Mount Upton Central School. Raymond was then drafted and served in the United States Army during the Vietnam Conflict from 1969 to 1971. He was stationed in Bangkok, Thailand. After leaving the military, Raymond went to work for the Bath Veterans Administration in Bath, New York where he worked for 27 years. He then went on to work for the ARC of Steuben until his retirement in 2011.

At the young age of 11, Raymond's father passed away in a car accident, which meant that Raymond had to become the "man of the house". He worked long hours as a hired-hand on farms while still going to school and achieving good grades. Raymond had a knack for story-telling. His children and grandchildren loved to hear his stories about growing up in and around Watkins Glen. Every time the family gathered, they asked him to tell "about the time…".

Raymond is survived by his wife Patricia, sister-in-law, Judith (Jim) Stage and five children; Raymond Jr. (Ruth) Ameigh of Swansboro, NC, Jennifer Ameigh of Bath, NY, Jonathan Ameigh of Hubert, NC, April (Russell) Ameigh-Derick of Wheeler, NY, and Sarah (Anton Medrek) Ameigh of Corning, NY. He is also survived by his grandchildren; Alexander (Brianne) Lumia, Matthew (Alicia) Lumia, Madison Ameigh, Jackson Derick, Lucille Derick, Raymond Ameigh III, step-grandchildren Lillian and Iris Medrek and his great grandchildren, Luna, Effrom, and Ophelia Lumia. Raymond also leaves behind his close friend, Jimmy Dee of Bath, NY.

Raymond was predeceased by his parents, Oscar Ameigh and Lucille (Simpson) Ameigh, and brother-in-law William Rice.

Raymond was greatly loved and will be whole-heartedly missed. A memorial service will be held on June 8, 2022.
