Raymond Antonio Swift A.K.A Spud B.K.A Ray Ray was born April 28, 1986 in Norfolk, VA unexpectedly gained his wings to fly to his eternal home February 5, 2021. He was born to Marie Swift and Raymond Branch. He was the second born of five siblings Taikyyah, Taikisha, Eric and Rayontay Swift.

Raymond leaves behind his legacy of one child princess, Makada Raychelle Swift, a wife Tiffanie Swift and one stepson Machias Johnson. He also leaves behind his great grandmother Margaret Swift, grandparents Phyllis and Robert Swift along with a host of 11 aunts, one uncle, cousins, three biological nieces, four nephews, one great niece and nephew. He also leaves one adopted in niece and six adopted in nephews.

Raymond graduated from Granby High School year 2007 and later obtained his HVAC certification at Tidewater Tech December 2019. When Raymond became a father that is what he enjoyed being most. He would take his daughter to the park in mission college apartments every chance he could and would spend every cent on snacks and cereal for his baby girl to eat; she was the only one who could boss him around. Raymond enjoyed listening to music and freestyling. In addition, he enjoyed sports from basketball to baseball to football. He was nice on the field and court.

Raymond’s favorite Football team was the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who finally won super bowl this year against the Kansas City Chiefs at the Raymond James Stadium. I can see him smiling now saying his favorite line of words that’s wassup! Raymond is and will always remain loved by his family and friends. To conclude Long Live Ray Ray!!

My condolences to the Swift family and friends of our dearly beloved "Ray Ray". I am really going to miss your infectious smile and you joking me about my lottery numbers. There is definitely a void in our hearts and at the Tinee Giant #352. Rest in Paradise King, until we meet again.
