June 10, 1952 ~ July 2, 2017 (age 65)

Raymond John Unrein Sr., 65, of Riggins Idaho, passed away in the comfort of his home on

John was born on June 10th, 1952 in Prineville Oregon to Robert Unrein and Darlene

Hilderbrand. John married Carol Bailey in October of 1973. John was a veteran of the Vietnam

War and served in the United States Army. During his time in the Army he was awarded many

medals. John was a mechanic, a welder and ran heavy equipment. John was a talented man

in all things he did. John was a licensed NHRA driver. He loved to do all things that had to do

with cars and outdoors. During the last few years he got very involved in building his cars and

drag racing. John earned a very meaningful nickname at Firebird raceway as the “Sandman”

when he drenched the racetrack in sand. John was an amazing man that was always willing to

give a helping hand, a listening ear and had a heart of gold. He would have given the shirt off

his back if you were ever in need. John was a very family oriented man who was always

planning the next family adventure.

John was preceded in death by his mother, Darlene Ruth Hilderbrand, his father, Robert John

Unrein, his son Raymond John Unrein Jr. and granddaughter Brianna Abigail Unrein.

John is survived by his daughter Patricia Rubey, granddaughters Shasta and Amber,
