Raymond Victa Agapay: A Life of Love and Service (1956-2016)

Raymond Victa Agapay passed away on May 27, 2016 surrounded by his family and friends at Sentara Hospital in Williamsburg. He is survived by his wife Grace and son Darren.

Raymond was born in the Philippines in 1956 where he was educated at the University of the East. He migrated to the US when he enlisted for the United States Navy. After proudly serving 22 years of active military service, he continued working for the military as a civilian for the Norfolk Naval shipyard upon his retirement.

Raymond celebrated 16 years of wedded bliss with his wife Grace during his stay at Sentara Hospital on May 24, 2016. He was a loving and hands on father to his only child Darren who adored him.

He loved photography, listening to music, good food. He would drive the distance just to try food at well reviewed restaurants and was an amateur food critic. Raymond also enjoyed keeping fit and was known for his sense of fashion and style, cutting an impressive and handsome presence.

Beloved by his family and friends for his generosity, humor, kindness and loving ways, Raymond adored children and treated the kids of his friends as if they were his own. He could always be relied on by his friends for help and support as well as words of wisdom or lessons in life.

The Agapay family will receive friends between 4pm and 8pm on Saturday, June 4 at Bucktrout of Williamsburg during a viewing and vigil. A funeral mass will be held on Tuesday, June 7, 2016 at 9am in St. Bede’s Catholic Church of Williamsburg. The interment is at Albert G. Horton Jr. Memorial Veterans Cemetery in Suffolk at 1pm.

    I remember Raymond as a fun loving, full of jokes guy in barber school. After he knew I was in the car business he always asked me the prices of cars that crossed his mind . Please accept our deepest condolences Grace and family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Rest in peace my friend Raymond.

    The staff, parents, and Darren's fellow classmates at Holloman Child Dev. & Elem. Academy remembers Mr. Agapay with such fondness. He was an adoring father who, along with his wife, took great pride in the success and well-being of his son, whom he loved dearly. Grace and Darren, you are in our thoughts and prayers. We love you and are so saddened by your loss.
