Ray Elizondo • February 17, 2022



Ray Elizondo, 84, of Milton, FL passed away February 17, 2022. He was born December 23, 1937 in Greenville, MS. Ray was a veteran of the USMC, a member of The Gideon’s International and Santa Rosa Chamber of Commerce, a member of the choir at several churches in the area, and attended Providence Church of Milton. He is preceded in death by his daughters, Mimi and Crystal Elizondo and brother, Tony Elizondo.
Loving husband and father, Ray was truly a family man and Christian who served God, his country and his community. All who knew him well would claim that he would do anything for anybody, day or night. He was always eager to help whether it was coaching soccer or T-ball, teaching Sunday school classes, giving someone a ride, making an extra stop at the store, picking up a sick grandchild at school, and much more. One might describe him as the most loyal, kind and honest man there ever was. He loved his wife more than anything in the world, and it was obvious to anyone that met them. He always wrote the most romantic things to her and would sing to her. He stayed by her side and brought her through serious illness and loss, never wavering. He adored his 4 girls and raised them to be independent Christian women. After raising 4 girls he was excited to have 3 grandsons and 2 granddaughters. He always practiced and taught his family Christian values. He is loved and cherished by family and friends, and we miss him dearly.
Ray is survived by his beloved wife of almost 60 years, Faye Elizondo; daughters, Lisa (Gerardo) Discepolo, Nicole Elizondo; grandsons, Nic Katona, Perry Elizondo, Gabriel (Angela) Discepolo; granddaughters, Sofie Discepolo and Bella Discepolo.
The family will receive friends for visitation at Pensacola Memorial Gardens Funeral Home from 2-3:00pm Saturday, March 5th. The funeral service will follow at 3:00pm with Pastor Zach Sims of Providence Church of Milton officiating. The family wishes to give special thanks to the pallbearers: Gerardo Discepolo, Michael Duplan, Ryan Highstreet, Drew Muñoz, Jeremy Olmstead, and Daryl Bell.

    Mister Ray was the sweetest man I think I have ever met. I didn’t get to I know him for very long. As a neighbor he was the best. He will be truly missed. It was obvious he was a truly loving family man. The world was a better place with him in it
