Raymond E. Bishop, 76, of McConnelsville, passed away unexpectedly, Wednesday December 18, 2019 at his residence. He was born on June 27, 1943 in Zanesville to the late George and Helen Grigsby Bishop. Raymond worked most of his life in area potteries and retired from Robison Ransbottom Pottery, where he served as the night watchman.

Among his favorite stories to tell were of his days fishing with his best buddy, John Faust, who has preceded him. Raymond is survived by his children, Molly (Scott) Gussler and Melissa (Mike) Ratliff; grandchildren, Kayla Todd, Morgan Gussler, Troy Bishop, Madison Bishop and Logan Ratliff; great grandchildren, Knox Gill and Matthew Todd; brothers, Joe (Wavelyn) Bishop and Dan Bishop; sisters, Pauline Allen and Ruth Bishop Adams.
