Ray was born on the farm southwest of Hodgeville on December 11, 1928. He married Eleanor Richards of Vanguard, SK on August 7, 1952. They moved to Swift Current, SK in 2018 and in February 2019 Ray moved to the Gull Lake Special Care Centre where he resided until his passing. Ray farmed all his life, first with his brother Albert until his untimely death in 1951. He then farmed with his brother-in-law Chester Sowa until 1969 when they sold the farm. Farming was still in his blood so he purchased land in the Neidpath area and farmed with his son Albert until he retired. We wish to thank Dr. Clare Kozroski and the staff at the Gull Lake Special Care Centre for the exceptional care he received while living there. At Ray's request a private family service will be held at a later date. Donations in Ray's memory may be made to the Swift Current S.P.C.A. P.O. Box 1163 Swift Current, SK S9H 3X3 or to a charity of your choosing. Warren's Funeral Home in care of arrangements.
