It is with great sadness that Tenneco announces a longtime team member, Raymond King, passed away unexpectedly last week after a short battle with cancer. Raymond had worked at the company for over 38 years and had recently announced his retirement from Tenneco.
In addition to being a good friend and co-worker, Raymond was also a proud father and husband. He loved drag racing, spending years as a driver himself, and proudly supported the careers of so many. Whether in the office or at the track, Raymond touched many lives in the auto and racing industry worldwide over his lifetime.
For those of you who would like to pay your final respects to Raymond, a celebration of his life will be held on Friday, December 17, 2021, at 2/42 Church Auditorium, 7526 Grand River Ave., in Brighton, MI. Visitation will be from 12pm-2pm, with a Memorial Service at 2pm. In lieu of flowers, Raymond’s wishes are to have donations made to the Vanderbilt Joe Franklin Rugby Fund in his memory at vu.edu/vurugby or to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital at www.stjude.org/donate.
The industry offers its deepest condolences to Raymond’s wife Debbie and his four children, as well as to all of the team members who had the opportunity to know and work with Raymond throughout his life.
