Obituary of Raymond C. Saunders Jr.

Westmoreland-Raymond "Chuck" Saunders, Jr., 81, of Vernon, NY, passed away on 6/2/2022. He passed away peacefully at home. Chuck was born in Clinton, NY, to Raymond Sr. and Violet (Cooper) Saunders. Early mentors taught him shrewd business savvy and deal-making skills that served him well. Chuck was a hard-working man who, over the years, wore many hats; highway department worker, stockbroker, dairy farmer, modular home co-owner/service manager. He flipped houses with his wife before flipping houses was a popular thing. For over 40 years, he trained racehorses at Vernon Downs as a hobby. He loved his family, the land and his animals, especially his special horse, Oven Ready. His loving wife of 63 years, Carolyn (Dinwiddie), was by his side every step of the way. They were best friends and a hard-working power couple. Chuck was proudest of being a husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend. In addition to his wife Carolyn and Children Melinda (Larry) Hubal, Ronald (Sue), Christopher (Doreen), and Jacqueline, Chuck is survived by 11 grandchildren, Amy Nelson, Tara Stanwyck, Brandon Hubal, Christa Sprague, Matt, Dan, Jesse, Megan, Autumn, Anara and Cara Saunders, 7 great grandchildren (8th one on the way), brother David (Bonnie) Saunders ,and sister Linda (Emile) Clemente.
