Raymond Paul Majors Jr, 37, of El Mirage, passed away on August 21, 2013.  Raymond was born in Phoenix, Arizona on June 4, 1976.  He was the 4th child born to Brigitte and Raymond Majors.  Raymond was an energetic child.  He loved to draw and create rap music.  Raymond was also a troubled soul.  He spent most of his life in and out of trouble.  Heck, you could almost say that trouble found Raymond just about anywhere he went.  Raymond was very smart, funny, and kindhearted.  He would give you the shirt off his back.  Raymond was a jack of all trades, he loved to tinker.  He would take things apart and put them back together with a few pieces left over.
Raymond is survived by his mother, Brigette; 1 daughter, Jordan; 1 son, Corbin; 4 sisters, Shirley, Ramona, Barbara, and Angelina; 4 brothers, Franklin, Daniel, Curtis, and Lawrence.  He was also to be a grandfather any day now.  He was preceded in death by his father, Raymond Paul Majors, Sr.
A visitation will be held on Wednesday, September 4, from 5:00pm-8:00pm, at Avenidas Funeral Chapel located at 522 East Western Avenue in Old Town Avondale. A service will be held during the visitation at 7:00pm.

  1. Raymond "Tripp" performed 2 rap songs of his own in my livingroom a few months ago. I was blown away. He was amazing.

  2. Raymond, I will always love you. We may have had our differences, but you gave me the best gift in the world. I can never thank you enough. May you find the happiness and peace you were also searching for. Hopefully there are lots or doughnuts and chocolate milk where u are!!! ;-) RIP Raymond.

  3. I met "Tripp" last summer through a very close friend of mine and I must say that I loved his stories. Tripp had everyone laughing that was there. Unfortuately, I only got to spend 4 to 5 hours that day listening and talking with Tripp. We had planned to get together again, but because of Phoenix's finest we will never get the opportunity to do so. I would like to let his family know that no matter what your Son, brother, husband, father and/or grandfather was a very special person and he will have a place in my heart forever and he will be sadly missed.

    I pray that God will bless all of his family and help each one of you find peace during this sad time. My condolences go out to each and everyone. May God Bless and keep you close to him.

  4. Just now heard the sad news about Mr Majors having been shot. I was always amazed at his demeanor and the way he spoke when I worked with him for years at both ADC-Tucson and Maricopa County Jail. He had a gentleness and innocence about him that was remarkable, esp knowing about his life, his past and his criminal background. He always spoke with love for his friends and family and was always looking out for the underdog, and stuck up for anyone he felt was being victimized. RIP Tripp and so sad to hear this is how your life came to a brutal end.

  6. I just heard ... someone really should have corrected hospital obituary, he has 2 daughters... & even though certain circumstances led people to make choices that were at that time best for Raven, she is his daughter...
