Raymondo the Padgetteer

Raymondo was a very valued part of the Padgett’s Motorcycle Team and became like lots of the team more like family.

We were very blessed to have worked with Ray, Raymondo, Blue Ray and the many other nicknames he developed over the last 10 years.

Ray started out as our truck driver but became much more than that. He started his journey with the team at very short notice; initially Ray was “just the driver”.

He went on to become our Specialist Rehydration Technician, Isle of Man TT Pit Crew, Pit Boarder, Specialist Fibre Glass Technician, Chief Washer Upper, General “Goffer” and anything else that was throw at him.

Now, don’t get me wrong Raymondo could have a PMS mood swing like no women you have ever met.  Every year he came racing it was always going to be his last, it was the teams running joke as we would leave the last round.  But every March he would show up like always with his sleeping bag in tow! 😊

Raymondo spent more time in the shower than anybody else you have ever met; he was always immaculately smart and hated to think that he was smelly or dirty.   He always wore his Padgett’s Motorcycles Team Clothing with Pride.

He will be sadly missed as part of the team.

We love you Raymondo, sleep tight, ride high in the stars.

Please see below the funeral arrangement, due to Covid-19 the team is unable to attend but his family have passed on the login details for the funeral if anyone would like to watch / attend.
