Raymond Lee McAlister
Raymond Lee McAlister was born in Lawton, Oklahoma on December 18th, 1957 to T.J. “Mac” McAlister and Sybil (Stinnett) McAlister.
Raymond was raised on the south side of Lawton, and attended school at Lincoln Elementary, and being the very special young man that he was, he also attended The Robert Greiner School for Handicapped Children and Young Adults for many years.
The Lord gave Raymond a special blessing that he has shared with many others over the course of his life on this earth. He led a very busy life participating in church functions, sporting events, rodeos, stock car races, county courthouse activities and the Oklahoma Special Olympics. He was famously known as ‘Bicycle Raymond’ because he rode his bicycle everywhere, especially in local parades, always sporting the American flag. Raymond was one of a kind and never let his handicap rule over his life. He will be sadly missed by all, but all have been truly blessed by knowing him.
Raymond was preceded in death by his parents and his step-father Joe Standridge.
Raymond is survived by many friends of the Lawton community and surrounding areas. Raymond was always a welcomed member of many organizations over the past 40 years. He never knew a stranger.
