Dr. Raymond Werner Eyerly, 82, formerly of Lanse, passed away Tuesday, March 5, 2019, at Mountain Laurel Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, Clearfield. Born September 8, 1936, in Morrisdale, he was a son of the late Robert L. and Sarah J. (McCliment) Eyerly. Raymond was a graduate of Morris Township High School. He served in the United States Army from 1958–60 as an administrative specialist at Fort Lesley J. McNair in Washington, D.C. Raymond earned a Bachelor of Science degree and a Master of Science degree in agricultural economics and rural sociology and a doctoral degree in business administration from the Pennsylvania State University. He began his career at Penn State in 1963 as assistant to the director of the Institute for Research on Land and Water Resources. From 1986 to his retirement in 2002, he served as assistant to the director of the Environmental Resources Research Institute. Raymond also held the position of senior research associate in environmental research and was an assistant professor of business logistics. His research focused primarily on the environmental, economic and social impacts of transportation systems, water development, energy extraction and production and other forms of developmental activities, as well as regional and local planning, business logistics, and property valuation and taxation. He also specialized in proposal development and the administration of sponsored research and was an expert and consultant for the development of software systems modeling for budgeting and management information. Raymond was the author or co-author of over 50 articles and publications, and a member of several professional and honor societies, including the Society for Research Associates (SRA), the National Council of University Research Associates (NCURA), Sigma Xi (The Scientific Research Society), and Beta Gamma Sigma (National Scholastic Honor Society for Business Management).

My mother, Katherine Forcey, was a resident at Colonial Courtyard and was a neighbor of Raymond’s for her first year there. I would stop in to visit him or see if he needed anything or would visit while we sat in the Library at colonial Courtyard. He was a very interesting person and very kind and patient with his caregivers. He truly had a great interest in all that he could learn through guest speakers or our field trips to Lock Haven Clearfield. I’ll remember him fondly.
