We have countless stories of Ray from over the past twenty years, but one of my best memories is from Mother's day when we were visiting mom. Ray had purchased three massive bouquets of flowers (for mom, my sister Lori and I) that were waiting in the bathtub for us when we arrived. He presented us with our flowers and a bottle of Veuve Champagne. Ray loved to buy champagne, although he did not drink. We will really miss you Ray. Love from the Mathison's xoxox'

Ray was a kind, generous, humble man. He has helped me in so many ways over the past 15 years, He always dropped by to say hello when the cottage was opened up for the summer or if he didn't recognize the car in the driveway and thought he'd just check to make sure everything was ok. You could always count on him stopping in his truck to say hello if he saw you on the road . The Chandos Lake, Renwick Rd. community will not be the same without him.

We are so sorry for your loss Shirley and family. We had the privilege of meeting Ray a handful of times over the past several years and quickly realized what a good man he was. You knew that if Ray and Shirley were dropping by that they would be bringing joy and laughter with them. Rest in Peace Ray xxoo

Ray's passing is a significant loss! Ray was a 'character' that we thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated. He showed up as a person with a deep caring and a very personal way of being, with everyone he met or worked with. The 'Renwick Warden' always greeted us with a huge smile, and a big 'hello' which led to an intriguing conversation laced with kindness, lightness and plenty of humour. Our thoughts are with you Shirley and the families, in this difficult time. This is the loss of a good, very respected, and genuine friend. Ray, you will be missed!
