"After 80 years of living a faith-filled life, during which he touched so many lives, Raymond J. Hilvert embraced our Heavenly Father’s open arms on April 29, 2019. With his devoted wife of 59 years, Sue, at his side, Ray entered eternal peace the morning after all of his grateful children had gathered around him in prayer and celebration of the countless gifts and life lessons he had provided them.

Ray was born on November 24, 1938 to Raymond and Rose (Moorman) Hilvert. His early years were spent in Price Hill with his six siblings, attending St William grade school prior to entering St. Gregory Seminary. He completed his final two high school years as a proud man of Elder, at which point he met his lifetime partner Sue. After four years of service in the U.S. Navy, Ray began his long career with IBM. In keeping with his strong belief in service to others, Ray’s outside involvements included serving as a Hospice chaplain, establishing and serving with the St. Vincent de Paul Bellarmine Conference, and numerous roles within the St. Columban Parish.
