A 1966 graduate of Our Lady of the Valley High School in Orange NJ, where he met his high school sweetheart and future wife, Constance. Raymond played center on his high school football team and was a member of the National Honor Society. Raymond and Constance married in 1971. He continued his education, earning his B.S.M.E. and graduating Magna Cum Laude from the Newark College of Engineering in 1970. While there he was Vice President of Tau Kappa Epsilon Social Fraternity, and a member of Pi Tau Sigma and Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honor Societies.

Last, he attended Seton Hall University for his M.B.A. In 1982, Raymond and Constance moved to their current residence in Alexandria Township, N.J.

Raymond spent forty-one years working at Johnson & Johnson and retired as a Senior Engineering Fellow. He had 56 patents, of those some still pending. During his time at J&J, he was honored with the Philip B. Hoffman Research Scientist Award for developing a new technology to manufacture adhesive bandages. Since then, this technology has become the dominant platform worldwide.

He often took interest in something, studied it, and mastered it quickly. He had a voracious love for reading, learning, and "searching for that interesting thing". He excelled in many trades including woodworking, blacksmithing, and beekeeping. His hobbies also included motorcycling, automobiles, skiing, golfing, gardening, playing bagpipes and didgeridoo, rebuilding farm and construction equipment, sculpting, archery, heavy fighting (sword and shield), brewing and winemaking. Having visited 32 countries, Ray was a true world traveler. He was actively involved in many organizations including MENSA, Morning Thunder Motorcycle Club, Rascals Rogues and Rapscallions, Society for Creative Anachronism, American Motorcycle Association, Porsche Club of America, Somerville Ski Club, Irish Setter Society, Artists Blacksmithing Association of America and the Guardian Warriors Charitable Organization.

Raymond was a devoted husband, proud father, and adoring grandfather. Of all of his achievements, his family was his most precious accomplishment.

Raymond will forever be missed by his loving wife, Constance Hull; sons, Raymond J. Hull III, and wife, Christina of Asbury, N.J., Roger B. Hull and wife, Kimberly of Ottsville, Pa.; grandchildren, Annabella, Evander, Raymond IV, Adelene and Hazel; and sister, Patricia Hull of Manchester, N.J.
