Warren Raynor

Warren W. Raynor, 87, longtime Cheshire, Connecticut resident went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday Nov. 25, 2015 at his home with his loving family at his side. He was the devoted husband of his wife Helen S. Dougherty Raynor for over 55 years. He was born April 1, 1928 in New Haven, Connecticut, the son of the late Kenneth Robert Raynor and Rena Scott Raynor.

Warren attended Hamden High School and Hopkins School in New Haven. He graduated from Yale University in 1951 where he was the centerfield starter for the baseball team. He served in the U.S. Army post graduation as a Romanian translator. Warren had a long career at SNET. When he retired in 1989 after 34 years he was the president of Sonecor Systems.

Summers during college were spent working in Kennebunkport where Warren and his brother, Ken, played baseball for the Kennebunkport Collegians. Yearly family vacations there yielded great memories.

He is the beloved father of Hugh Larson and his wife, Barbara of Bethany, Connecticut; Silah L. Larson of Cheshire, Connecticut; and Nancy L. Rubino and her husband, Guy of Southbury, Connecticut and Kennebunk. Warren is survived by his cherished grandchildren, Bobby Rubino of Phoenix; Joel Rubino of New York City; and Kenny Rubino of Medford, Massacusetts. He was predeceased by his brothers, Kenneth R. Raynor and Gordon Raynor.
