Ray was born and raised in Bell Island, NL. His greatest joy was his children and grandchildren. Ray moved to Ontario in 1984 with his family and worked at Foundries and Factories to provided for his family. Ray enjoyed collecting hockey memorabilia and cruising in his Barracuda with his wife by his side using the imaginary brake. The last few years Ray loved fixing up dirt bikes for his grandchildren to ride in the open field behind the house.
Beloved husband and best friend of Ruth for over 40 years. Loving father of Todd (Ashleigh) and Jennifer. Cherished Grandfather of Aiden, Sahvannah, Owen, Ryder, Chase & Paige.
