So sorry to hear this. Raleigh was always happy to see everyone at the shoots. He was one of the good guys. Please let his family know they are in our thoughts and prayers.

God bless,

Tom and Vickie Larkin

Raleigh was a classic, a character in every sense of the word. I shall miss him a great deal. So happy Sam (his son-in-law) went into the Nevada Trapshooting HOF before Raleigh passed. Respects to the entire family. Truly, Steve

I'm saddened to hear about Raleigh. He had been my friend for many years. My respects to his family and son-in-law Sam who also is a good friend of mine. My life was made brighter by knowing Raleigh. He will be missed!

I'm sure I've seen Raleigh but I don't know for sure. Would someone tell me what he sold as a vendor so I can see if I can place him. Thanks.

I am very sad to hear about Raleigh's passing. Jan and Raleigh were alway my 'go to' people for hats, tees and embroidery. Couldn't walk past his truck without rubbing the dogs. I shot with him a few times, he was a very nice man. condolences to the family. Trevor Dawe

Our condolences to Raleigh's Jan and their family. Every trip to Tucson, Carol and I looked forward to visiting with Raleigh and Jan (and the dogs). When they quit vending, I bought the steps they used to get up on the trailer ramp for our trailer. He was also my advertising "cap-maker" for many years.

We will truly miss him. ...Carol and Merlyn Petersmeyer

Raleigh was certainly one of a kind!! I always enjoyed visiting with him and he will definetly be missed. Raleigh would always ask me for my Mom's Baklava receipe and I would tell him it was a secret Greek Family recipe and couldn't be given out! Our prayers and condolences to Jan and his family.

I had the privilege of shooting on a squad with him several times - what a gentleman in every sense of the word! He also was a consistent supporter of youth shooters at the Pocatello Gun Shoot over the years.

A real great guy and always willing to help. At Double Adobe, Raleigh introduced us to the best deep fried turkey we ever had. Proud to have called him our friend. Our prayers to Jan.
