Dr. Raymon

December 17, 1950 — August 11, 2015

Bruce Copeland Raymon, 64, died on the evening of August 11, 2015 with his loving wife, Gena, by his side. Bruce was born December 17, 1950, in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. He went to the University of Alabama before attending University of Alabama Birmingham for medical school. He moved to Pensacola in 1982 and pursued a successful career as a gifted neurosurgeon for the Medical Center Clinic. Although he was a well-respected surgeon he was best known in the medical community for being the sharpest dressed person at the hospital. He wasn't afraid of wearing clothes that got him noticed! He retired in 2003 and has enjoyed living life to the fullest on beautiful Pensacola Beach. He loved snow skiing, and taught his girls at a young age to enjoy the sport by making them follow the tracks he left in the fresh powder regardless of how sharp his turns might be. He was an avid Alabama fan and on Saturdays in the fall he was often found cheering on the Tide and then toasting another big win. His favorite activity in the world though was sitting on his back porch with Gena and watching the beautiful sunsets over the water. He leaves behind his wife of 13 years Gena (Ledford) Raymon; his daughters Rachael Gilmer (Albi) and Forrest Faulkner (Ed); 3 beautiful grandchildren and another one on the way; a niece, Elizabeth Love (Glynn) and his entire beach family. His parents, Reba and David Raymon and his sister Sylvia Raymon Wright preceded him in death. Services will be held at 3:00 PM at Pensacola Beach Community Church on Friday August 14, 2015. Visitation will precede the service at 2:00 PM. Jack Kale will officiate. A celebration of life will be held afterwards at Bruce's favorite beach hangout, the Sandbar. In lieu of flowers contributions in Bruce's memory may be made to Think First, a national injury prevention foundation at www.ThinkFirst.org Arrangements entrusted to Rose Lawn Funeral Home.
