Raymond Harold Nowell, age 80, of VA Beach, Virginia passed away February 3, 2021, in Gloucester, VA where he lived out his last few years with his oldest son and his wife. Raymond was born on January 20, 1941 in Webster County, Georgia to Chester and Emma Nowell.

Raymond was born and raised, working on the family farm at his Homestead, until shortly after he and Florence Nowell were married, in 1962, when he went into Retail Management and moved to Virginia, where retired after 55 plus years. He was also a member of Poplar Spring Primitive Baptist, the family Church growing up, and later became a member of Tidewater Primitive Baptist Church of VA Beach, VA

He is survived by four sisters and one brother: Mary “Sue” Sanders {Gerald-deceased}, Catherine Moore {Mercer}, Winifred Monroe {Lamar-deceased}, Sandra Walls [Ronnie-deceased] {Bob France}, Clayton Nowell {Nancy}, Sister-In Law Lisa Nowell; four Sons: Kelly Nowell {Betty}, Keith Nowell {Becky-deceased}, Steven Nowell {Teresa}, Michael Nowell {Michelle}; Grandsons: Daniel Nowell, Robert Nowell {Krystal}, Joshua Nowell {Jazmin}, Matthew Nowell, Blaine Banton, Austin Banton, Josh Woods; Granddaughters: Typhani Shealy {Matt}, Ashley Woods Rodriguez {Joel}, Heather Nowell, Samantha Nowell; Great-Grandchildren: Jacob, Emily, Oliver, Mikey, Nina, Emma, James, Johnathan, John, Madeleine, and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.

He was predeceased by Parents: Chester and Emma Nowell, Sister: Betty Jean Phillips, Brother: Henry “Earl” Nowell and Brother: James Oliver Nowell who passed away at 9 months old

Raymond will always be remembered as a hard worker. He was a true friend to his classmates and helped anyone he could in his community. Raymond had such a great sense of humor, a trait he never lost through his years. He loved his family and was best known to his grandchildren for his “grandpa hugs”, that always seemed to make everything better, and “grandpa’s breakfast especially his BISCUITS”. Raymond loved the outdoors, gardening, fishing, cooking out and spending time with family, and of course he was a BIG Dallas Cowboys Fans!! And Rex, Raymond’s “boy” as he always called him, his dog, loyal till the end, never far from his side.

We would like to thank all of the doctors and nurses along the way who helped care for Raymond. Our Family Practice doctor, Dr. Frank West, who took him on as a new patient when they weren’t accepting any at that time, to his staff, to the Riverside Vascular Team, the Home Health Amedisys Team, his Private Aides, Dee, Misty, Lorilie and Maryam for loving and caring for him as family, and to the Riverside Hospice Team.

A viewing will be held on February 9, 2021 at Family Choice at 11am with a funeral service starting at 12pm. A graveside service will then follow at Riverside Memorial Park in Norfolk, Virginia. Details for the services can be found below.
