Obituary of Raymond Irineo Miguel

Raymond Irineo Miguel passed away peacefully on February 16, 2024, surrounded by his family.  


Raymond was born on July 30, 1945, in Sacramento to Irineo and Margarita Miguel. He was raised in Clarksburg, CA. He always talked about how much he loved Clarksburg and how much fun he had with his brothers, Albert and Carlos, and his sister Rita, running and playing all over the sloughs, fields, and other places they could find. They lived in the country in the camp of one of the local farms and when he was in the 5th grade they moved to the town of Clarksburg. Because his father was a farm worker he would go up and down California for work so during the fall through spring until he was in 5th grade, his dad would take them to live at his grandmas in Chandler, Arizona. He had so many cousins to play with that he loved going to Arizona. 


Raymond went to Clarksburg Elementary and then graduated from Clarksburg High School, Class of 64. As they got older, he and his brothers would work in the fields also. After high school graduation, he went on to Sacramento City College where he graduated from Sac City with an AA degree.  In 1967 he and Albert joined the Army. He went on to serve in the US Special Forces. He was so proud to be a Green Beret. As a Green Beret he was crossed trained as a medic at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas, Communications Specialist, and in Special Ops at his home base of Fort Bragg in Fayetteville, North Carolina. He loved being in the Army. He would do survival training in the forests and woods of North Carolina and in Alaska. He always said that that it was great that he could go camping and have so much fun and get paid for it at the same time.  When he was discharged from the Army he started his studies at CSU-Sacramento. He and Albert owned their own business, Sound Tech Lab, in Sacramento for almost 20 years. During this time, he continued his studies and eventually graduated in 1978 with degrees in Real Estate and Land Use Affairs and in Finance. He met his beautiful bride (as he always called her) Susan, in 1975. They were married in 1978. He and Albert sold Sound Tech Lab in 1986 to pursue other interests. In 1987 he went to work for the State of California at the Board of Equalization and then in 1989 was hired as a Youth Correctional Officer with the California Youth Authority. He worked a few months as a YCO and was promoted to Youth Correctional Counselor. He was a YCC until he retired in 2008. 


Raymond is survived by his devoted wife of 48 1/2 years, Susan, his loves of his life, son, Tony Miguel of Pine Grove, daughter, Tiana Mohr (Kyle) of Ione, and son Michael (Alea) of Jackson, adored grandchildren, Elizabeth, Mackenzie, and Madison Miguel, Gauge and Camden Mohr, and Mateo Miguel.
