George LeBLOND

LeBLOND, George Raymond
July 12, 1924 - December 26, 2012
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of G. Raymond LeBlond. Ray is survived by his beloved wife of 66 years, Marj, daughter Julie Parker (Howard Stoker), grandson Sandy Parker (Taryn), great-grandson Carson and grandson Bryce Parker (Courtney). Throughout his life he had the ability to touch the hearts of all, and always had a smile on his face and quick with a story. Even in his final days, he was making those around smile and laugh. He was a Fourth Degree Knight of Columbus. During WWII, Ray proudly served in the RCAF with the 434 Squardon. Ray spent most of his career as a Chartered Life Underwriter for Canada Life, dedicated to caring and helping people. The LeBlond/Parker family will hold a service for him on Thursday, January 3, 2013 at the Good Shepherd Church in South Surrey at 1:30 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to Peace Arch Hospital Foundation will be appreciated in Ray's honour.
