“Beulah Land” gained a beautiful soul with Raymond Lee Skinner, recently passing away at his home at the age 76 on Friday, March 26, 2021. Raymond was born October 16, 1944 in San Antonio, Texas and was a resident of Friendswood, Texas since 1992. He received his Masters Degree from the University of Incarnate Word in San Antonio and his Bachelors Degree from the University of Texas at Austin. Raymond worked as an Area Director for OSHA and would later open Skinner and Associates where he would serve as an expert safety witness for a large number of clients. Science and investigation were the perfect match as being an industrial engineer for his career satisfied his purpose professionally. However, personally, his perfect match truly found him when he met his bride, Marian Skinner and later married in 1973. Together, he and Marian would continue living out his years fishing, hunting, and traveling the world. Being a Christ-centered man, he was also a member of South Park Baptist Church in Alvin and would later become a member of First Baptist Church of Pasadena. “Victory in Jesus” was the song he knew so well, and can now be permanently celebrated as his home. Raymond is preceded in death by his parents, Paul and Irene Skinner.
Raymond is survived by his loving wife of 47.5 years, Marian Skinner; daughters, Mary Anderson and husband Chris, Jamie Groth and husband Bill; brothers, Robert Skinner and wife Linda, Noel Skinner and wife Kathy; grandchildren, Hunter and Mollie Anderson, Haley and Hayden Groth; along with numerous other relatives and friends. Honorable mention must also follow suit for the impeccable caretakers of both Raymond and Marian - Tanya Hernandez, David and Anita Hernandez, Chelsey Cantu, Mandy Leath, and Gracco and Christy Contreras.
