IN REMEMBRANCE OF RAYMOND T. EDMONDSON

 

The Fort Lauderdale Police and Firefighters’ Retirement System is saddened to announce the death of Raymond T. Edmondson.  Ray served as a Fort Lauderdale police officer from 1971-1992.   He helped start the FOP Chapter to represent police officers and served as its president.  He negotiated the first labor contract for the officers.  Ray also helped establish the pension plan as we know it today – creating a trust of independent trustees responsible for collecting the pension contributions, investing the funds, and distributing benefits to retired public safety officers and survivors.  He served on the pension board from 1985-1991.  After retiring, he help found the Florida Public Pension Trustees Association (FPPTA), serving as its CEO for 30 years. We extend our thoughts and prayers to his spouse, Lois Edmondson, and to his children, Kim Ryals and Ray Edmondson Jr.   

 

A viewing will be held in Tallahassee on Friday, June 23rd from 3:00 - 5:00 at Culley's MeadowWood Funeral Home, 700 Timberlane Road, Tallahassee, Florida 32308. Services will be held at this loaction at 5:00.  Donations may be made to Big Bend Hospice, 1723 Mahan Center Boulevard, Tallahassee, 32308
