Raymond Clyde Huey, 92, of Irwin, passed away Wednesday, Oct. 20, 2021, at his home surrounded by his family. He was born Aug. 21, 1929, in Johnstown, son of the late Bland A. and Ada M.

Raymond is survived by his loving wife of 64 years, Karen (McCall) Huey; two sons, Robert (Debbie) Huey and Thomas (Melissa) Huey, all of Irwin; two special granddaughters, Angela and Alyssa Huey; brother-in-law, Robert Bezila, of Connecticut; and several nieces and nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews. Raymond was a graduate of Johnstown High School and the University of Pittsburgh with a civil engineering degree. He was a Navy veteran, having served during the Korean Conflict. Raymond was a longtime executive of the Fulton Piano and Organ Company and later owner of Keyboard Outlet, located in Irwin.
