Known as Pete by his friends from Fancy Gap to Myrtle Beach, his favorite nickname was Pete Daddy given to him by his granddaughters. Pete was a lifelong resident of Eastover and graduated from Central High School in 1962. He broke from tradition and married his sweetheart from across the river, Fay Powell. He built roads for a living starting as a heavy equipment operator at Crowell Constructors, who kept him even after crushing a state inspector's car. Eventually, he retired from construction as Project Manager after 38 years. Pete loved hunting, fishing and the outdoors. In retirement, to stay outdoors, he took up beekeeping.
He is survived by wife of 56 years, Fay Powell Raynor, his two sons, Todd Raynor and Brandon Raynor, his two granddaughters, Gates and Bailey, his sisters in law Jo Johnson, Pat Welch and Mary Barbara Raynor as well as many nephews, nieces and cousins.
