Raymond Peter Dewyer, 68, passed away in his home in Faribault, Minnesota on February 17, 2023. Raymond was born on April 16, 1954 in Ludington to Ovid and Emily Dewyer and grew up in Pentwater. He met Suzanne Marie Nigro while attending college at Michigan State University and they were married in October 1977. They had two sons, Nicholas Alexander Dewyer and Stephen Garrett Dewyer and raised them in Bloomfield Hills. Raymond and Suzanne divorced in 1996 and he did not remarry.  Raymond spent time living and working in southeast Michigan, Kansas, and Indiana before settling in Faribault, Minnesota. He had a career in corporate environmental, health, and safety before spending the last few years enjoying the freedom of retirement.

Having the mind of an engineer, he enjoyed home projects, electronics, cars, and motorcycles. He had a passion for researching his family’s genealogy and history. Raymond was reliably jovial and cherished sharing good wine and conversation.
