Raymond Wilson Mallery, Jr. (1939-2020)

Raymond Wilson Mallery Jr. was born to Raymond and Angela (Leonesio) Mallery on December 3, 1939 in Santa Cruz, California. He passed away in his home in Sparks, NV on February 10, 2020.

His family moved to Johnstonville and then moved to the Ranch in Susanville where he raised a family and farmed until 2015. He graduated from Lassen High School in 1958. In 1963 he married Josie Landa.

Raymond began farming at a young age and truly loved being a dirt farmer. Raymond is well known and respected for his hard work ethic in the farming community. He loved hosting family deep-pit BBQs, weddings, the Rotary Cattleman’s Barbeque, and general get-togethers at his Ranch. He farmed until 1983 when he retired from farming and went to work for the Lassen County School District Transportation Department. He then became a maintenance custodian for Johnstonville Elementary School and the Lassen County Superintendent’s office. He was proud to bring his farming skills to these positions and was ever grateful for the friendships he made in these roles.

In 2015 Ray and his wife Josie moved to Morning Star Senior Living Community in Sparks, Nevada. While in Sparks he continued his love of farming by planting an annual vegetable garden and flower garden.

He supplied many fresh vegetables to the dining hall at Morning Star. He loved helping his grandchildren plant their first gardens and maintain their fruit trees.

Ray enjoyed returning to Susanville to visit family and friends and always made a point to see his great grandchildren on a regular basis.
