May 19, 1944 - May 23, 2019

Réal (Ray), the most happy-go-lucky man you could ever meet, passed away peacefully, on Thursday, May 23, 2019, at Ste. Anne Hospital, at the age of 75. He was diagnosed with (IPF) Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis in 2017.
Ray is survived by his beloved wife of 35 years, Raymonde (nee Dupont); daughter Gena and son Joël; grandchildren, Christopher and Hanna; sister Béatrice; brothers, Gilbert (Solange), Edward (Karen), André (Rose), and many nieces and nephews.
He was predeceased by his daughter Lisa at a young age of 38; his sister Diane (Léo); his parents, Edmond and Louise; and his brother-in-law Bernie.
Ray loved music, playing and singing guitar: a fun loving, easy going, kind of guy. He filled our hearts with love and memories. He also enjoyed going to the Blue Bomber games, and watching his hockey, and all sports for that matter.
He worked at Transcona Roofing for 38 years until his retirement in 2008. He then did some travelling, and camping, and just enjoyed life with family.

"We love you and miss you already"

Celebration of Life will be held on Thursday, May 30, 2019, at 2:00 p.m. at the Birchwood Funeral Chapel, 162 PTH 52W, Steinbach, MB.
Donations in Ray's memory may be made to Manitoba Lung Association.
