We thank Jerry Gileot for notifying Brace Beagling that Coraopolis lost another long time member Raymond Legge. Ray was a colorful and hard working member. Most notably in the field as he marshaled. His sayings "We are burning daylight" or an explanation "Mother Goose ". Made everyone laugh Ray passed in his sleep and the afternoon before he was joking with Tim Beck and Gary Bushmire. Rest in Peace old friend and give Ray and Bud hell.

Raymond was also a member of the Coraopolis and Five Points Beagle Clubs for many years. His passion in life was to own, raise and train beagle dogs for field trial competition where he trained many award winning beagles. He also loved to hunt and fish with close friends.

Raymond was a special person with a unique character and personality, and blessed with many skills and talents. His personality was very straight forward being recognized by family and close friends as one of the most generous and kindest people you could ever know. He was also extremely loyal to family and friends and to the town of Aliquippa.

Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near, so loved, so missed, so very dear.
