Friends and family set up GoFundMe account for Raymond funeral expenses

Friends and family members of Christopher Raymond have started a GoFundMe effort to help cover funeral expenses for the 18-year-old, who died in a car wreck Sunday.

"Christopher Raymond passed away in a automobile accident Sunday, January 14th, 2018. He was only 18 years old and wanted to be a Criminologist.

Everyone who knew Chris knew what a fun, witty and compassionate kid he was. Even dealing with diabetes daily and the hardships that came with that, he always had a great smile on his face and he loved life.

Chris will be missed by family and so many friends, including the entire school he attended and town he lived in. So many people wanted to know how to help Willy and Amanda in this time of need so we started this fund to help with last expenses.

Any help would be greatly appreciated for this unexpected tragedy. Funeral will be 10 a.m. Friday at Evans Chapel of Memories in Poteau.He is survived by his parents, Amanda and William Raymond of Heavener; a sister, Chey Scroggins of Oklahoma City; a brother, Lane Scroggins of Heavener; and grandparents, Vicky Yandell, Travis Cavender and Sandra and William Raymond."
