Raymond "Bud" L. Nehring, went to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Tuesday, May 16, 2019, at his residence in Carbondale, Illinois. He was thirty days away from his 99th birthday.

Raymond was born in Hinkley, Illinois at his family farm home to Raymond C. Nehring and Grace A. (Larrison) Nehring.
