Dear Dorothy and family,
I will always cherish the memory of having lunch at your house with my parents, Franklin and Ann Quinlan, a couple of years ago. You and Raymond were so much fun, and my Dad and Raymond told such great stories of growing up in Maidstone. I loved seeing all of your beautiful paintings, and your lovely house. Thank you for inviting us.
With my parents both so recently gone, and now Raymond, I feel I am sharing in your loss. I am holding you and your family, especially Bryon whom I know, in my heart. My prayers are with you all. Much love, your cousin, Chris Quinlan Gordon

I remembered when we were very young, John, Gary, Dad, Uncle Steve, Larry, Wayne and I were over at Uncle Raymond and Aunt Dorothy's house. We were celebrating something, we were watching the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Maple Leafs were playing the Red Wings for the cup within the first 5 minutes of the game Dickie Duff #9 scored 3 goals in about 3 to 4 minutes and Toronto ended up winning the cup that very night, everybody was excited!
We would like to express our deepest sympathy to Uncle Raymond's family for their loss. He was a great Uncle and always seemed easy to talk to and was a lot of fun.

Aunt Dorothy, Susan Michael, Don, Bryon, spouses and families:

Uncle Raymond was the life of the party. I will always cherish the memory of singing at grandpa and grandma’s house. We all gathered (after a few drinks, of course) in a circle , and holding hands . Uncle Raymond and Sandy belting out, “Country Roads, and
Lord, Come By Here.”
I was very young at the time but this memory of love stayed in my heart.
I am happy that I was able to celebrate Uncle Raymond’s 90th birthday party.
His disposition has remained the same, greeting and acknowledging everyone with his infectious smile and kindness.
My condolences to everyone of you.
You had an extraordinary husband, dad, grandpa and great grandpa.
Until we meet again, stay safe, love and hugs.

Our Condolences to Aunt Dorothy and the entire family. Uncle Raymond was such a special man who will be missed by so many! The brothers are reunited and looking down on us with much love. I'm so grateful (as Dad was) for the last few reunions so they could see each other. Thinking of you all.
