Uncle Ray, all the stories you shared with us was just outstanding. From coming to Canada at a young age as a baker, travelling the country from far east to Regina, settling yourself in the prairies, getting married and having 2 beautiful children , building your own property at Rowans Ravines, planting trees with your parents coming from Germany, having a successful painting business, flying your own airplane, scuba diving in various provinces to mention a few.
You are in our book an "All around soldier".
From the Levesque Clan, Baerbel and I, Lynda, Blake, Izaias and Urijah, Kyle, Nathalia with a baby in the oven, we thank you for being an outstanding uncle to us, a wonderful father, grandfather and great grandfather and of course a loving husband to your wife Baerbel.
May you rest in peace, Stand Easy - End of mission.

You will always be remembered as Opa to Sean and I, and our kids. Blessing us with your loving openness to show that family isn’t defined by blood. The true definition of unconditional love. You’re genuine love for friends and family showed through your amazing smile. You will be missed beyond words Opa. Thank you for all the time we had with you.
All our love,
Sean, Julie, Aiden and Molly xoxo
To the family, our hearts are heavy at this time for everyone. Find peace in the beautiful memories you’ve been blessed to share with him.
Lots of love.

God has another new angel in heaven that is looking done on all of us. We are both happy that you are finally free of all of your pain and suffering but are sadly missed. There are people that come and go in your life and you were one of our very special friends that we are proud to call family. Thank you for all of the many memories wee shared and laughter. We had many good times and were always there for one another even during the hard times. I look outside every night and saw a bright shining star and instinctively knew it was you looking down on us. One of many my special memories is you always saying “I have a little room for ice cream right here” (as you pointed to the spot). I am so happy that I sang you “soft kitty” at the hospital and made you smile and as I left told you I loved you and you said "I love you too" back. All of our love to you always as you are forever in our hearts and missed every single day. xoxo ❤️Our sincerest condolences to Barb, Frank and Reine, Marina and Detto, and all the grandchildren, great grandchildren, and all of the relatives.

Ray was a long-time and much loved family friend. I haven't seen him in years because I moved away from the area so long ago, but he (and Doris) was always a friend to our whole family. I can't count the number of times I've seen his happy smile and I can easily hear his cheerful voice in my head. My sincere condolences to Marina, Frank and family. Your family meant a great deal to our family.
