Raymus Homes: The Next Generation is moving forward with Oleander Estates west of South Union Road and straddling Woodward Avenue.
Among the initial phases is the Charles O. Palmer II Park. It is being named in honor of the Marine corporal who grew up in Manteca and gave his life in the Global War on Terror.
Another noted name that will grace new development is the Antone E. Raymus Expressway. It is the name attached to the major street planned to connect with a new interchange between Austin Road and Jack Tone Road and then swing to the northwest to connect with McKinley Avenue.
Raymus was instrumental in numerous long lasting civic endeavors including founding and bankrolling Give Every Child a Chance, helping finance and provide a location for Love Thy Neighbor that helped tens of thousands of struggling people over the years, provided the seed money for the building of the Boys & Girls Club, and gave financial assistance to other groups and individuals (often without them knowing it), and helped numerous churches with their building efforts.
At one time Raymus Development had built one out of every five homes in Manteca.
