Raymond Chance Mangum left this mortal world at age 33 in Layton, Utah, on July 31, 2016. He passed away on his way to the hospital after suffering a severe heart attack. Raymond Mangum was born on Dec. 10, 1982, in Provo, Utah, the son of Mark Gene and Susan Hardy Mangum.
He graduated from Foot Hill High School in Henderson, Nevada, in 2001 and went on to serve a two year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Detroit, Michigan. He spent the last 10 years of his life working for Loomis, a loyal and dedicated hard worker.
Raymond has been remembered as an outdoors person who loved to go hiking, camping and rollerblading. He had a creative mind and also loved movies and sharing the latest random movie he had discovered. He would also pull out magic tricks or juggling balls at family reunions for the younger kids. He has been called a gentle giant or a giant teddy bear.
He was a loving person who almost never had anything bad to say about anyone and was quick to forgive. Raymond had a generous heart and was always quick to notice someone in need and quick to share the money he had in his wallet with people standing on the streets. He was never judgmental of anyone. He would always call and check up on family and loved to visit. He was adored by his family, especially his nieces.
Raymond is survived by his family: Parents, Mark and Susan; siblings, Matthew, Natalie (Knowlton), Melanie, Russell, Layla (Pyne), Melissa and Sarah; and his nieces, Alyssa, Kate, and Chloe; and his grandparents, Gene and Carma Mangum. Proceeded in death by his grandparents on his mother’s side, Chance and Marilyn Hardy.
