    Hi Amber! Welcome to WikiTree

    What an interesting adventure you are embarking on!

    I like to help with things like that, but there is one thing you can do to make it easier for me and others here: start a profile for your grandfather, include everything you already know, and share the link to his profile here with your question,  WikiTree has some good research tools that make that the best starting point.  Also, then there will be one place to save all the research results.

    I have to dash to work now, but happy to have a look at your mystery this evening.  But to say it again, it would be most helpful if you make a profile.

                That site also quotes this obit:

                Darrill Jerome Raby, 88, from Los Fresnos, TX passed away on Tuesday, December 12, 2017 at his residence. He will be greatly missed.

                Left to treasure his memory is his wife Maria Carmen Raby and his four children; Darrill Jerome Raby Jr. from Pensacola, Florida, Eve Marie Ashley "Nee" Claudia Christine Raby from Cheyenne, Wyoming, Cregory George Raby from Chula Vista, California and Marie Josephine Gilbert from Pensacola, Florida.

                As per his wishes; there will be no services.

                From the other answers here, and also the obit that Find-a-Grave found (we should look for the original), it appears that Darrill and Aida divorced in 1966 and Darrill married Maria Carmen Chavez Pulido in 1967.  

                You mentioned the same 4 children that the obit mentions. I wonder why the obit only mentions Aida's children?

                That link is to an online obit published by the funeral home.  It seems to be the exact same obit as at Find-a-Grave.
                thank you I didn't get to read his obituary
                those are his only children he didn't have any with Carmen the other wife we just found out about the other son till his passing. my grandfather told my aunt right before he passed I don't think his wife Carmen knew about the other son. it was told to me  the other sons mother is black and both of them are in guatalaira south America. sorry I cant spell thank you so much on the info amber
