Rest in peace Raymond. I will miss our talks. You were a very wise man, with a great outlook on life. I learned a lot from you. And we had many laughs together. Thank you for looking after Mum for so many years. You deserve all the credit in the world for that alone.
A man about town. Raymond knew everyone and everyone knew him. He touched the hearts of many. I shall miss our conversations and the laughter we had for many years. Your unique sense of humour will be missed by us all. Rest In Peace my friend, pain free.
We were all blessed to have Raymond in our lives and he will be missed by many. Raymond had a twinkle in his eye and a great British sense of humour, and always wore his heart on his sleeve. He had a gentlemanly manner, was a stylish dresser, and kept a beautiful home in Dundas. Raymond sang for us at special family occasions, and always had a great story to tell. He was a caring and doting companion to Jill in his last few years, and they enjoyed good times together until illness came along. Farewell, Raymond.
Us three girls and families in the UK would like to thank all you wonderful friends for your love and support you have shown to Ray at this sad time. RIP Ray you have left some great memories. xxx
Known as Raymond from Bath, a good, generous and thoughtful friend from the other side of the pond. Thank you mate for helping out when another pair of hands were needed with my yard work. Raymond always made you welcome when visiting his home, a beer or two was always on offer. I will miss him when l visit the local bars in Dundas, characters like Raymond are a dying breed. I will always have fond memories of our vacations together. Thanks old buddy, Rest In Peace.
RIP Ray, I will miss you, the laughs and your friendship.
