Raymond McCall Jr., age 54, of Elgin, IL, passed away at his home on September 10, 2021. He was born March 13, 1967 in Chicago, IL to his loving parents, Raymond Sr. and Velma McCall (née Sledge).

A word from Raymond’s beloved wife, Lisa:

Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult things we can go through. It’s with total sadness that I share the passing of Raymond McCall Jr. His passing was so sudden and we are devastated.

He was 54 years young and it was far too soon for him to be taken home. I know he is in the loving embrace of his parents Raymond Sr & Velma McCall, his grandmother Amanda Amerson whom he affectionately called “Grandma Dynamite”, and his brother Michael McCall.

He leaves behind his sons, Malique McCall and Lovell (Dimarcus) Garrett; sisters, Ramona McCall and Amanda McCall; brother, Charles McCall; and his wife, Lisa McCall (née Martinez).

Thank you for your prayers and kind words of support. Please keep Malique and Raymond’s siblings in your prayers.
