June 4, 1940 - May 20, 2022

Ray Iwanick passed away peacefully at 81 years of age, after a short but brave battle with cancer at Jocelyn House Hospice, Winnipeg.
Beloved husband of Marilyn for over 57 years of happy marriage and cherished by his only daughter Jennifer. Lovingly remembered by his brothers, Arnold and Larry; his sister Gloria Stowell, her husband Randall and Jennifer's husband Harry.
His smile, graciousness, good sense of humour and positivity will be forever missed by everyone who knew Ray.

As Ray would say:
We were friends because we chose to be,
for reasons of our own.
Because we liked to share the things
that weren't so sweet alone.
We were family because it was to be
and we all had much to give.
We understood that family made us one, but with choices how to live.
We were family and friends
because it had to be.
Our hearts were closely bound
and I always was thankful for
the family and friendship that I found.

- Mary Wheeler Edgerton

In memory of Ray, a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, family and friends may make a donation to Jocelyn House Hospice or a charity of their choice.
