Honouring tradition while respecting change
Ray you were a great frirnd and willing to help someone when ever you were asked. You are going to be greatly missed and always be in our thoughts.
I am so sorry to hear of Ray’s passing. I was part of the St. Elizabeth family for a few years and worked with Ray daily. Ray’s sense of humor, and care for his school was evident. His love for his family was often shared through his stories... My thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and school family. Sending my deepest sympathy...

Ray was a great guy and good person to work with.He will be missed and i will keep him and his family in my prayers
R.I.P. Uncle Ray, I'll miss you so much.
Of all the many blessings. However great or small, to have had you for an uncle was the greatest one of all. The family chain is broken now and nothing seems the same, but as God takes us one by one the chain will link again.
A heart of gold stopped beating. Two shining eyes at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us he only takes the best. God knows you had to leave us, but you didn't go alone, for part of us went with you the day he took you home. To some you are forgotten, to others just part of the past, but to us who loved and lost you, the memory will always last.
A beautiful memory, clearer then gold of a uncle whose worth can never be told. There's a place in my heart no one can fill. I miss you, Uncle Ray, and always will.
His life earnest, his actions kind. A willing hand and active mind. Anxious to please, loath to offend. A loving Uncle and faithful friend.
The sun still rises in the east and darkness falls at night but nothing now seems quite the same each day is not as bright. The birds still sing, the flowers grow, the breeze still whispers, too but it will never, ever be the same world without you. It's so sad that you had to go your leaving caused such pain but you were so very special and earth's loss is heaven's gain.
I love you uncle Ray, till we meet again. R.I.P. and say hi to Uncle John. I'm sure he is happy to see you. I bet when he seen you walk through those pearly gates, his face lit up with one of his big bright contagious smiles. Ready to greet you and shake your hand.
Forever loved, forever missed, but never forgotten. Gone too soon.
My prayers and thoughts go out to family and friends...
Keeping the family in my thoughts and prayers
Rest in peace our friend Ray, love thoughts and prayers for your family
R.I.P.Uncle Ray.I will miss you.

I am going to miss the way he would joke around with us kids. He liked to make us laugh. Just the other day he was blocking the doorway to a classroom, he let my friend go in but not me. I will miss him and remember him. (Avery)
I had the pleasure to work with Ray at Holy Family school for a couple of years. He was a great person to work with. I always enjoyed chatting with him and listening to his stories. Such a great loss. Rest In Peace Ray.
My heart is broken due to the unexpected & sudden passing of Ray. Ray was a good husband to Maryanne, amazing father to our children Ciara & Daniel,and his other children J. C. , Holly & Marshall, and Anthony. He was a good friend to all who knew him. Even thou he is my ex husband he will always be cherished. May you be resting in Peace in the arms of God. May your light shine down on your children, granddaughter to be and all of your family. Forever in our hearts we will keep you.
So very sorry to have lost such a nice man way to early in life. Ray could always find a reason to smile ,and make others smile also. I have known Ray for many years we worked together at Oxford in Wallaceburg also we worked together at the School Board.
My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Ray at St. Elizabeth more than a couple of years ago. Ray was always good for a joke and a smile. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Ray's sense of humour always brought a laugh to staff and students at St. Elizabeth school. He was always there to help when needed. He will be truly missed and my prayers go out to his family during this difficult time.
Ray, we will miss you. Rest In Piece my friend
I've had the pleasure of working at St.Elizabeth with Ray for the last 5 years or so. He was a good man who always had a smile and was willing to lend a hand. We've shared many laughs and stories over the years. He'll be greatly missed by the staff and students.
