His loving wife Sandra and loving daughter Karen were at his side.
He is survived by his wife and soulmate Sandra, sons Jeffrey (Lucie) and Gregory and daughter Karen (Colin).
His loving and fun personality will be dearly missed by his grandchildren Mason, Norah and Tomas. Ray was a lover of life who really made the most of his time with us.
He was a huge Toronto sports fan and an avid golfer.
After thirty years of service, Ray retired from the Durham District School Board at the age of 56, to winter in Florida.
Ray and Sandra also travelled extensively in their retirement. Celebration of Life will be forthcoming.
