Raymond Granger, Jr. "Tarzan"

May 25, 1958 — October 6, 2023


Raymond Granger, Jr., a beloved father, grandfather, and great grandfather, passed away on October 6, 2023, in his hometown of Mamou, Louisiana. Born on May 25, 1958, in the same close-knit community, Raymond left a lasting impact on all who had the pleasure of knowing him.

Tarzan, as he was affectionately known by family and friends, was truly a man of God. His devotion to his faith was unwavering and served as an inspiration to those around him. Tarzan's warmheartedness and willingness to lend a helping hand endeared him to everyone he encountered. He lived by the principles of kindness and compassion, always striving to make a positive difference in the lives of others.

One of Tarzan's greatest joys in life was spending time with his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. His love for family knew no bounds, and he cherished every moment he had with them. Tarzan's presence brought joy to family gatherings and his wisdom provided guidance during difficult times.

In addition to being a nurturing father figure to his five children - Raymond Granger III, Regina Grant, Mary Granger Hopper, John Ray Granger, and Joshua Paul Granger - Tarzan embraced the role of grandparent wholeheartedly. He possessed an effortless ability to create lasting memories with his ten grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. Family gatherings were filled with laughter and warmth as Tarzan imparted wisdom gleaned from a life well-lived.

Tarzan found solace in reading the Bible throughout his journey on Earth. The scriptures provided him with strength and comfort during times of trial and tribulation. His unwavering faith anchored him throughout life's challenges and inspired those who were fortunate enough to witness it.

Though Raymond Granger Jr.'s physical presence may no longer be with us, his spirit will forever live on in our hearts. The legacy he leaves behind is one of love, kindness, and a profound connection to faith. The countless lives he touched will carry his memory forward, cherishing the impact he made and the lessons he taught.

As we bid farewell to Tarzan, let us remember the words of Psalm 27:1, which exemplified his unwavering faith: "The Lord is my light and my salvation- whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life- of whom shall I be afraid?" May his legacy continue to inspire us to walk in faith, spread love, and serve others with a compassionate heart.
