Sorry to hear about Uncle Ray. Saying good bye is never easy. Our thoughts and prayers and with you during this difficult time.
By Wayne and Debbi...

Barry, Wayne, Joanne and your families Your father, father in law, grandfather and my brother was one of a kind, although he lived his life in Ontario he never forgot his roots back in Newfoundland. He drove his family every year to the island to spend vacation time with his parents and relations. We lost count after his 40th year. He loved to fish and hunt and would always cart along a deep freeze to transport back to Ontario his successes. Memories of those years will always be cherished. His handiwork at being a carpenter is also notable. His love of his family was evident, always speaking of their achievements with pride in his voice. It is with these thoughts in mind that we send to you all, our deepest sympathy, every good life must come to an end, and, he had a good life! God bless you all.

Barry, although I did not personally meet your Dad, I know that you were close to him, and have many fond memories of the times you spent together, especially those summer vacations when he would pick you up on the last day of school and head to Port Rexton for several weeks of the summer every year. Your Dad lived a lengthy, fulfilling life however, that does not diminish the sadness you feel in his passing. Cherish those "happy memories" as they will guide you through the grieving process. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you during those periods of loss and sadness that you will experience in the coming days.

So sorry to hear about Uncles Ray's passing. I have so many fond memories of him. He had so much pride for his children and for his Newfoundland roots. His eyes would light up when he talked about both. They say you can tell a Newfoundlander in heaven because they are the ones who want to go back home! I'm sure he's up there now talking about Newfoundland and his wonderful children. Take comfort in the wonderful memories you shared with him. Take pride in the way you cared for him. Deepest sympathy
By Gail and Craig

It is never easy saying good-bye to a loved one. You have to take comfort in that fact that your father lived a wonderful life surrounded by the people that were near and dear to him. Not only was your father an uncle to me but he was also my Godfather and as such, it is bittersweet that he should pass on the day of my birth, a coincidence that will not be forgotten. Hold dear to the memories you have and cherish them forever. Let them bring you peace at this difficult time. Sending sincere condolences your way.

Joanne, Wayne and Barry: We are sorry to learn of Uncle Ray’s passing.

Please know that our thoughts are with you during this difficult time.

Barry, Wayne and Joann, sorry to hear of your father's passing. Please accept our deepest sympathy.
By Che's and Doug ...

We were so blessed and fortunate to have such wonderful neighbours as Joan and Ray were! They watched our children grow up, and were always interested to hear what they were doing. Ray kept asking when I was going to have a boy! We had many conversations about gardening, as his tomatoes always grew better than mine!! Luckily, he was good at sharing! We always loved to hear Ray's stories about his life but also about the neighbourhood. He loved to know what was going on with everyone! Please accept our condolences, and take comfort in all of the wonderful memories you shared with him. It is never easy. Thinking of you all!
By Bill and Bonnie

Barry, Wayne and Joanne we are so sorry to hear about your loss. We are so thankful for having spent many summers with him in Newfoundland. We remember many trips up to their place in Port Rexton for supper or welcoming them at mom and dad's place in Champneys after supper for coffee. Although often a quiet man, he did share stories with us and even took the chance to explain filleting fish to Dan when he was first learning. You are in our thoughts and prayers as you grieve the loss of your dad.
By Dan and Jackie
