Condolences & Memories (6 entries)
My sincere condolences to Ray's family and field of friends. Before I even knew his name, I was very aware of a very handsome young man who walked by our house on Saturday mornings on his way to work at the local Safeway. Once I entered high school at Vincent Massey, a friendship eventually developed. I recall a specific day Ray when dropped by our home, also located on Dowker Ave right next to the school. I was in the midst of trying on a new coat to determine how much it needed to be shortened - my Mom and I were having a difference of opinion regarding length. Ray made major points with my Mom when he supported her preferred length... points made with me that day, not many. Always with a ready smile and a willingness to lend a helping hand, Ray was one of those people remembered throughout the post-high school years. - Posted by: Jennifer Fleming (High Schhol Friend) on: Nov 13, 2019
Knew Ray from being at Rick Burrons place. - Posted by: Grant Granger (Acquaintance) on: Nov 10, 2019
We have lost a dear friend and wonderful person. I don't ever remember seeing Ray without a big smile on his face. Ray loved to share his interesting life and especially his adventures in movies, he did have a great face. One endearing memory I have of Ray is when he helped push my boyfriend's car out of a deep snow drift at Gimza Hut. Ray would remind me of this over the years with a big grin and a wink. See you later, my friend, you are missed. - Posted by: Jan (Lindsay) Lowe (Longtime friend.) on: Nov 09, 2019
Ray was a wonderful guy. I have happy memories of Ray as a friend during my high school years. So many people feel the same way. I was lucky to run into Ray over the years and he always greeted me with a warm and friendly smile and happy hello. Ray was a fun, considerate and especially kind person. - Posted by: Helen Strock (Friend ) on: Nov 09, 2019
Ray, long time friend from school. We spent many hours at Ray's home on Dowker playing cribbage and ping pong. Ray's parents were great people, always there to greet you at the front door. Ray loved sports and the entertainment that followed. Over the past number of years we would get together with school mates for a lunch and talk about old times and present times. Donna and I will certainly miss you, rest in peace old friend. - Posted by: William Vernon (Bob) (Long time friend) on: Nov 09, 2019
In our early years Ray and his family was very close. What a wonderful friend and companion. I will truly miss that friendship, the great tales and experiences that we still might’ve had. It is much too early to say goodbye. My deepest condolences to all those family and friends that will miss Ray. Ray will always be in my memories. Rest in peace dear friend. - Posted by: Court Brooker (Friend) on: Nov 09, 2019
