It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our "Papa." On the early morning of Tuesday, January 22, 2013, at age 90, we said goodbye to a brave and loving husband, father and Papa. He was an inspiring, gentle man who was curious about life and continuous learning, and cared more about others than himself. Raymond was a man of strong faith who confronted life and his illness with determination, strength and grace. Beloved husband of Mireille for 60 years, and dear father of Monique and Micheline (Peter). Greatly loved and admired by his grandchildren Chantal (Bryan), Chelsea (Marvin), Marisa and Maddison. He is survived by his sister Yole, and his nieces and nephew. Raymond was a man of integrity who impacted many, both personally and professionally. His career spanned various businesses, where most recently he is remembered for his contributions to the optical industry. A devout Catholic and a member of the Knights of Columbus, 4th degree, he will be greatly missed by many friends and family from around the world. We are all so thankful for the time we were given to love him. We are deeply grateful for the care and support given him by his long-time physician, Dr. Liang Ng, and the staff at both Margaret Fulton and West Vancouver Care Centre. Prayers will be held at St. Anthony's Parish, 2347 Inglewood Avenue, West Vancouver on Friday, January 25, 2013 at 6:00 p.m. Funeral Mass will be held Saturday, January 26, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer's Society or Margaret Fulton Centre c/o the Lions Gate Hospital Foundation would be greatly appreciated.
