Ray will be missed by his many nieces and nephews as well as his friends. Ray was a long time employee of Kellogg’s Canada in which he retired after 35 years. He was part of the executive for the union during his time there and was fortunate to make many lasting friendships there. For those who knew him well understood his love for what he called "God’s Country" which was his beloved Beauty Lake in Northern Ontario. Not only was this a favourite spot for family summer vacations but also many holidays spent with friends there enjoying his other love which was fishing.
Visitation will take place on Saturday July 13th, 2019 from 11am-1pm with the service immediately following at the Logan Funeral Home, 371 Dundas Street, London with reception to follow. We would like to extend our sincere Thank you to the staff at Meadow Park for their kind and compassionate care. In lieu of flowers please consider Chalmers Presbyterian Church for donations.
