Raymond Clifford Medbury, 84, of Greenwood, SC, formerly of Massachusetts, Virginia, and Seneca, SC, died Tuesday, October 27, 2020 at Wesley Commons in Greenwood. Born May 24, 1936 in Providence, RI, he was the son of the late Raymond Nelson Medbery and Irja Milada (Markkula) Medbery of Gardner and Boston, MA.

Mr. Medbury attended the Bentley School of Accounting and Finance in Boston (now Bentley University in Waltham, MA) and graduated in 1956. He then entered the United States Navy, where he trained as an Electronics Technician. During his Navy career, Mr. Medbury served in the White House Communications Agency from 1968 to 1978 where he traveled extensively throughout the United Sates and the world in support of four Presidents, five Vice Presidents and other dignitaries. In February of 1972, he spent 30 days in Peking, the capital of the Peoples Republic of China, supporting President Richard Nixon’s historic trip to reopen relations with that nation. After his retirement from the Navy, Mr. Medbury and his family moved to Lake Anna, VA where he built a home and became a Realtor. In 1986, he became the broker/owner of Lakeside Realty, and then retired for a second time in 1999. At that time, Mr. Medbury and his wife built a new home on Lake Keowee, which they occupied until moving to Wesley Commons in Greenwood.

He is survived by his wife of 61 years, Joan Cheney Medbury, formerly of Phillipston, MA and a daughter, Karen L. Medbury, of Atlanta, GA.

Mr. Medbury will be interred next to his parents in Green Bower Cemetery in Gardner, MA.
