Raymond A. Magagna (85)

Raymond A. Magagna, 85, of Portland, OR passed away peacefully on March 31, 2018. Born September 16, 1932, in Ogden Utah, he was the son of Angelina & Mario Magagna. He graduated from Weber High School in 1950 and attended Weber State College. He married Vivian Dykster, his beautiful wife of 62 years in 1952 and welcomed their first of three daughters one year later. After graduating from Idaho State University, Ray & Vivian moved to Portland, OR where Ray began his lifelong career as pharmacist and business partner/owner of Cent Wise Drug and Hallmark at Cedar Hills Shopping Center. Ray was passionate about pharmacy and the relationships he built with his many loyal customers. He was truly a kind, loving husband, father and grandfather. Together, they raised their family, while Vivian enjoyed a modeling career and served as a devoted volunteer at St.Vincent Hospital for approximately 40 years. She was also a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother. Sadly, she passed away in 2014 after a brief illness.

Ray and Vivian enjoyed time with family and friends, skiing, boating, fishing, clamming and crabbing on the Oregon and Washington Coast. They also traveled to Utah annually to visit family and enjoyed vacations in warm tropical destinations.

Survivors include Kathryn, Raylene (Garry) Dion, Carol (Rob) Roseta, five grandchildren: Brandon (Meghan), Nick (Kelli), Michelle, Alexis (Corey), Natalie and five great-grandchildren.

A Memorial Service will be held at Skyline Memorial Gardens Chapel on Friday, May 11th, at 11:00 AM. Our heartfelt gratitude goes out to Bridlemile Senior Care. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be sent to Providence Hospice Foundation, 6410 NE Halsey St., Ste 300, Portland, OR, 97213-9904.
