Obituary

Raymond Wharton O’Neill, III, 67, of Millsboro, DE passed away at home on July 25, 2020. Ray is survived by his wife, Barbara O’Neill (Stringer) and his children, Raymond and fiancée Kristen, Steven and fiancée Katey, Kevin and wife Patricia, and Kelly and fiancé Shawn. He is also survived by his four siblings Dianne, Sharon, Maureen, and Michael, their spouses, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Ray was born in Washington D.C., the son of Hugh and Gwendoline O’Neill. Ray was the youngest of five children. He was a graduate of Bladensburg High School, Class of 1971. Prior to retirement, Ray was a hardworking steamfitter and proud member of the Steamfitters UA Local #602. While Ray was a strong supporter of his union, his most cherished union was the one he made with his wife, Barbara, in 1980. 

For the past two years, Ray thoroughly enjoyed his retirement. He loved spending his time boating, fishing, traveling, and watching the Caps and Nats win. Additionally, Ray was a member of Sons of the American Legion Colmar Manor #131 and Elks Lodge #2540 of Cape Henlopen, DE. 

Ray was a generous, loving, and extraordinary father, husband, and friend with a notable sense of humor. He will be deeply missed by his family and friends.
