FLORIDA – Raymond “Ray” Kane, 52, formerly of Norwich, died unexpectedly on Friday March 29th.

He was born in Norwich on Oct. 11, 1966. He was very successful in sales and distribution, and years ago had been owner and operator of the Lincoln Inn and Ziggy’s Bar.

Ray was a lover of life and all its experiences, from Grateful Dead concerts and everything Jerry Garcia to traveling and making new friends everywhere he went. Ray’s family and friends describe him as “larger than life” and say he would light up any room he entered; he had such a sparkle in his eyes and his specialty was making people smile. His true passion, as it was well known, was his children, Cameron and Caitlyn.

Ray is survived by his mother, Benita “Betty” Kane; his children, Cameron Kane and Caitlyn Kane; brother, James Kane and his wife Jennifer; niece, Hayley Acevedo; nephew, Timothy Kane; and Cameron and Caitlyn’s mother, Kimberly Kane.

Visitation will be held Friday, April 5th from 1pm – 4:30pm at the Church & Allen Funeral Home, 136 Sachem St., Norwich, CT. A Celebration of Life event will follow beginning at 5pm at the Knights of Columbus, 47 Second St., Taftville, CT. Burial is private at the convenience of the family.

Ray wasn’t a flower guy but loved his kids more than anything. Donations to them in his memory may be made to the Go Fund Me account titled, Ray Kane Memorial Fund.

I met Ray through Tina at their fave local hangout. From the first time I met Ray he always had a smile even if his day was cloudy. One could always know he would find the best in every situation and share his sunshine with all. Ray adored his kids more than anything and was so proud of them. Ray always had an adventure in his heart and a nice word for everyone. He was truly a gentleman and always was there to help anyone. It’s a gloomy day knowing his sunshine has left us.

My heart has been heavy since I heard this news. My prayers go out to your family. From the day I met you at NBT you always brought a smile to my face. We had alot of conversations and when you spoke about your kids your face always lit up. I was happy and lucky to have met them both. Football Sundays were always better when you were there and I knew you would find a reason to call me "Linda". Feels like Superbowl Sunday was just yesterday and will always treasure those great memories. Rest in peace my friend. You will be missed.
