On behalf of the Julian Family, thank you for the continued support for our family and the outpour of love for our beloved son, brother, uncle and friend, Raymond...

Raymond Malapitan Julian was born on May 6th, 1978 in Pasay City, Philippines. He was welcomed into the gates of heaven the morning of Friday, September 22nd, 2017 at Scripps Beach in San Diego, California where he was most happy being one with the ocean, and at peace with the ride and sound of its waves. Raymond’s spirit lives on through his father Reynaldo, mother Marian, sister Maureen and brother Reynaldo Jr. His passions in life included his love for Zoe Madeleine his beloved niece, surfing, basketball, coaching his PQAC swimmers, sharks, movies and music – from your old school slow jams to the reggae beats of Bob Marley. Raymond’s legacy however is best defined by his selflessness and through “you,” as he always sought to put you and your family first whether it was by making you smile, laugh, or through his hospitality and generosity. He made clear what you meant to him, but more importantly demonstrated it. Raymond’s legacy and spirit will live on through each and every one of us.
