Raymond “Ray” Klassen

Mar 22, 1951 – Feb 12, 2018
Klassen, Raymond (Ray) born March 22, 1951 in Vanderhoof. Passed quietly with family by his side February 12, 2018 in Vernon. Ray was the 7th child to Erdman (1985) and Elizabeth (1988) Klassen.

Ray lived his life with great energy. He drove logging truck in his beloved Cariboo for 25 years. Along with operating all sorts of equipment. But not excluding an Inn keeper from 2000 to 2010 in Seton Portage. He loved this venture as he met so many different people that he made an extended family. He missed them all greatly.

Ray is survived by his wife of 43.5 years Gaby and Son Travis (Sheena). His siblings Katherine (Dan), Dora (Norm), Barbara (Al), George (Joy), Jean (Larry), Pat (Dave), Mary (Frank) and Della (Raymond).

He will also be missed by many nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews and the great…greats as well and many cousins throughout the country.

There will be a celebration of life on March 31, 2018 at the Parker Cove Community Hall at 2:00 pm., 175 Westside Road, Vernon, BC
