Raymond J. Kuhn, Age 96, a Naperville resident all his life, died peacefully at St. Patrick’s Residence in Naperville, IL on July 15, 2012, where he received very loving care. His last days were spent with his family including his wife of 70 years, Harriet (nee Drendel) Kuhn, his sons Bill (Carol) Kuhn of Sugar Camp, Wisconsin, Dave, Tom (Sue), Tim (Robyn), Don (Vicki), and Roger (Traci) Kuhn, of Naperville IL and his daughters Mary Kay Mach (Chuck) of Aurora, IL and Carol Walsh (Dan) of Warrenville, IL. He was very proud of his 20 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren. Ray is survived by his sisters; Mary Meyers and Henrietta (Ken) Richardt of West Chicago, IL. He was preceded in death by his parents Walter T. and Ottilia Kuhn, his sisters Ruth Kuhn, Regina Laggis, Katherine Doolin and brothers Walter Jr., Alvin and Richard Kuhn.

He was born on December 17, 1915, in a small house on the corner of Bauer Road and Mill Street. After graduating from Naperville Community High School, Ray worked a number of jobs before being drafted into the army during WWII. He spent many months in North Africa, Italy, France, and Germany.

Upon retuning from the war, Ray began farming on Eola Road (currently Stonebridge). He farmed there for 32 years. Ray retired from farming, and began working for the Naperville Park District. He continued his service with the park district until he was 80 years old. He enjoyed preparing and taking care of the community garden plots for many years.

Ray enjoyed a variety of activities and clubs. He was a member of organizations such as the Loyal Order of the Moose, VFW, and 25 Dance Club. He enjoyed playing golf, playing cards, dancing, and being with family and friends. Ray was known by many as an usher at the 8 o’clock mass at Saints Peter and Paul Church. Some may remember him pulling chains at the Naperville Central football games until he was nearly 80 years old.
