Info for any family members that are searching for connections with Raymond's family. The reason for the "Pacek" within Raymond's name: Pacek was the family name when they arrived in the United States from Czechoslovakia. Grandma Pacek had several sons - William, Louie and Eddie changed their last name to Pack while Victor and Dominic kept the family name of Pacek. Raymond's father (William) was one of the boys that changed his name.
