Raymond Gustav Drees was a farmer who lived much of his life near Daykin, Nebraska.

Gustav was born on October 11th, 1928, the youngest of Gus and Mary's six children. He was reportedly spoiled by his family, in part because his brothers and sisters were all between six and fifteen years older than he was. He had a lot of patience and a love for children, even as a young man, as his many neices and nephews were always anxious to play with Uncle Ray.

Raymond served in the military.

He married Donna Marschmann in 1950 and together they took over his father's farm near Daykin. They had four daughters: Beth, Jan, Faye and Jean.

Raymond Gustav Drees died on August 20th, 2012 when he was 83 years old. His funeral was held at St. John's Lutheran Church in Daykin on the 25th and he is buried in St. John's Cemetary, just outside of town.
