Raul Hamel loved his music. In the '70s, Raul and Joe Gallo performed as "The BeeGees", paying tribute to their favorite group. Joe continued on with music and traveled the world as a "Beatle". Raul made a living as a top-notch welder. Cars and B-1 aircraft were in his DNA. Raul had fond memories of his high school friends. I will always remember what fun we had at football games, the Strawberry Festival, and with our Baptist Church group. My brother passed peacefully in his sleep on January 2, 2014. I miss him greatly. He joined our wonderful mother, Susan Marie Hamel, who passed on November 19, 2011. They are together with our Lord.

Angie and Dave,

I just read of Raul's passing from over a year ago.  I am so sorry, but happy that He knew the Lord.
