NISHIMURA, Raymond Dan -
August 17, 1962 – May 10, 2023
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Raymond.
After a brief illness, Raymond passed away peacefully, at Hospice Vaughan.
Predeceased by loving parents, Yutaka Glenn and Chiyeko Janet (nee Otaguro); cherished sister, Connie; and adored grandma, Sumiye Otaguro. Survived by brother, Rick (Yuki); Auntie Kay Otaguro; and cousins, Jamie (Tracey), Stan (Kathy), Darrell (Judy) and David. Cinema was Raymond's passion in life.
He was a longtime patron of the Toronto International Film Festival and a supporter of its wonderful programs.
To honour Raymond, please watch a movie, either in a theatre or at home and enjoy (don't overly critique)!
Heartfelt thanks to amazing friends, Amy and Joyce Ito and very dear soul sister, Jeanette Mugford, who often visited and comforted Raymond while hospitalized.
A private family funeral will be held at the Toronto Buddhist Church and a Celebration of Life will occur at a later date.
In lieu of flowers or Koden, donations may be made to Hospice Vaughan.
