His father was Paul, son of grandpa Anton's brother John Hesch & Ket Mueller. Paul, remember, was the boy pictured in the Hesch General Store, in 1914, as a 7 year old.
Paul married Anna Valentine in 1928 and they had six children, Ray being the third.
Raymond married and had 4 children with his wife Joyce. They lived in Concord, California, so most likely, there's a Hesch branch out there!
Added much later: this was a tragedy in a young life, for sure.
