December 1, 1934 – February 20, 2013
Ray passed away peacefully February 20, 2013. He was born in St. Joseph’s Hospital, Comox. During his life he lived at Woodland School, Pearson Hospital, Osoyoos, False Creek Group Home, Vancouver, Poplar Grove Group Home in Vernon for 15 years and then back to Comox for the last four years of his life. Last month he was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer. He spent his whole life being a role model to everyone he met. He taught us courage, perseverance, strength, optimism and had a great sense of humour. He will be dearly missed by his loving family and friends.
A special thank you from his family to his Earth Angels in Vernon – Rita, Susan, Kathy, Mike, Russel and to anyone else whose life he touched. He will be buried in Slumberland at Forest Lawn Cemetary in Burnaby, B.C.
