Raymond C. Jackson
Raymond C. Jackson, 90, of Newport Road, Wampum, passed away Tuesday, March 24, 2020, at his residence, surrounded by his loving family, following a brief illness.
Born on Jan. 8, 1930, in New Castle, he was the eldest son of the late Robert B. And Eleanor R. (McKinley) Jackson Sr.
He was married to Maryann Zultowski Jackson for 63 years.
In addition to his wife, Maryann, survivors include a son, Thomas E. Jackson of Wampum; three daughters, Jeanne Pittavino of Cranberry Township, Janet (John) Emig of Poland, Ohio, and Peggy (Stephen) Needler of Aledo, Texas; a sister, Thelma J. McMillen of Apopka, Florida; six grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
Ray was preceded in death by his parents; son, Raymond D. Jackson; a brother, Robert B. Jackson Jr.; a son-in-law, Stanley M. Pittavino; and infant grandson, Nathan M. Needler.
Ray was a proud American and Korean War Veteran.
He was a lifetime member of American Legion Post 749 Wampum.
Ray was employed as a teamster for more than 40 years with Helms Trucking and RYDER P.I.E. He found pleasure meeting people along his daily routes and with his warm friendly smile, he never met a stranger.
Ray enjoyed traveling to visit family and friends, gathering around the table to play cards, golfing and his Sunday morning polkas.
As his family and friends can confirm, he was always the first in line to support loved ones in times of need.
Ray deserves a beautiful tribute. In this unknown time with the COVID-19 pandemic, a private service will be held. Please be with us in prayer.
A celebration of Ray's life will be announced at a later date. Please no gifts or flowers at this time.
Arrangements have been entrusted to the Marshall Funeral Home, Wampum. Online condolences may be sent to marshallsfh.com.
