Raymond McIntyre, Jr. was a resident of Willingboro, New Jersey.  Mr. McIntyre was an exceptional person whose interest included reading, walking, and Bible study. Like most inventors of new product ideas or improvements to existing products, Mr. McIntyre conceived the idea for the McIntyre Earth Viewer and Design Burial Vault as a result of personal creativity, professional experience, ingenuity, and a recognized potential for such a product. Mr. McIntyre originally conceived the idea for the McIntyre Earth Viewer and Design Burial Vault during the month of February 2000.  He first disclosed this information to others in April 2013. He hoped this invention would become a reality, as it could offer technologically advanced way for mourners to remain connected to their departed loved ones. An enhanced vault with an incorporated camera, the McIntyre Earth Viewer and Design Burial Vault would facilitate 24/7 visitations, and thus a constant comfort for those who are grieving.
