Raymond David Bendig, 24, of Alpena, was called home to his Lord and Saviour on Tuesday, June 4, 2019 following apparent heart failure.

Raymond was born Oct. 23, 1994 in Detroit but grew up in the Alpena area. He had a zest for life and quite a green thumb. He was an avid gardener and had a gift for getting just about anything to grow. He was active in church Bible studies and church activities where he was always willing to volunteer whenever there was a need. The greatest joy in life for Raymond came from family. He cherished the blessing of being a father. Raymond’s time with us here was far too short yet impactful as he will be missed dearly by many.

Raymond is survived by his fiancée Abigail Wasiak, his three children; Jamal, Mya, and Kelvin Bendig, adoptive mother; Kimberly Soik Schultz (Bendig), biological mother; Vicki Bendig (Scott Schaedig), his brother Devon Bendig, grandparents; Shirley and Patrick Bendig (Nannie and Poppie), and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. He was preceded in death by his father Raymond Verbick.

Visiting hours will be held at Word of Life Church on Saturday, June 8, 2019 from 11:00 AM until the time of the funeral service at 1:00 PM with Pastor Brad Matuszak officiating. Memorial donations can be made to the Word of Life Benevolent Fund. Online condolences can be registered at www.mcwilliamsfh.com
