Raymond Henry Miller passed away peacefully on April 7, 2021 in Langley, B.C. at age 94. Ray is survived by son Sandy (Gerry); daughters Barbara (Peter), Penny (Todd), Stephanie (Pat); grandchildren Craig, Jennifer-Lee (Adam), Dason, Sandra (Ivan), Michael (Theola), Carina (Barney), Daphne and Candice. Also lovingly remembered by brother Fred (Ruth), dear care support friend Cathy, great grand children, nieces, nephews, cousins and many friends. Ray was predeceased by his wife Isabel in 2013, his parents Heinrich and Teha, sister Freida, brothers Donald and Edward.

Ray was born November 25, 1926 in Plotstsk, Poland. He came over to Canada at age 3 with his parents, sister and brother on the Empress of Scotland. The family initially settled in Saskatchewan then in 1941 moved to Vancouver, B.C. Although Ray’s former schooling ended at grade 8 he was a life long learner and mastered many trades and skills: farming, fishing, construction, logging, automotive, plumbing and electrical. He always had keen interest in space, technology - always delving into how things worked.

Ray met his sweetheart Isabel in 1947 and married in 1949. They decided to move to Chilliwack in 1954 to raise their family. Ray and Isabel so enjoyed social visits and travelling with family and friends all through the years. In later years He so lovingly cared for Isabel during her illness.

Ray was a Member of the Canadian Order of Foresters in earlier years, and was very involved with many of the bingos, socials and dances. Many dear friendships were developed there.

Ray will always be remembered as such a hard worker right into his 90’s. Ray was a friend and a great Handyman Helper to Many!!

Picture you both now enjoying a lovely swing waltz together.

To Barb, Sandy, Steph, Penny and extended family we are sending our condolences on the passing of Uncle Ray. We will always remember him as a strong, energetic, great sense of humour and one of a kind. I have many fond memories of Uncle Ray but a few stick out the most. As a little girl I will never forget how he could hold on to a electric fence and not even flinch. He was also an amazing dancer especially the polka and loved how he took Isabel around the dance floor and they looked like pros. Maybe soon we can all get together after these Covid times and share many more memories of Uncle Ray. You are all in our hearts and know he is now with Auntie Bell enjoying a cup of tea and a butter tart! ❤️🌹❤️
