Raymond Votier
Raymond (Ray) Votier, 83 of Stamford, CT passed away on December 6, 2017 after a courageous battle with mesothelioma. He was born on November 27, 1934 in London, England and was the son of the late Agnes Mary Votier (nee Donovan) and William Ernest Votier. He was predeceased by his brother Brian Votier of London, England. He is survived by his former wife Christine Ann Votier (nee Meleady), who remained very close to him, his three children, Sean Votier, Elaine Votier Biersack along with her husband Joseph Biersack and Brian Votier. He had five grandchildren Colin Votier, Devon McNerney, Lauren Votier, Heather Votier and Justine Biersack. He also had a 10 week old great-granddaughter, Thea Votier. Ray apprenticed as a pipe fitter and turner in England before earning a National Engineering Certificate in mechanical engineering. He moved his family from England to the United States in 1968 to pursue his career. He initially worked as a piping designer for Crawford and Russell in Stamford and later at many other engineering companies. In 1982, he bought a PIP printing franchise in Norwalk, CT and operated the business until his retirement. Ray was a long time member of the Freemasons and was a Double Past Master of Ivanhoe Lodge No. 107 in Darien, CT.
The family plans to hold a memorial service to honor his life at a date to be determined.

So sorry to hear of Rays passing. I am wondering if Ray is the same Ray I knew back in the 60s who lived
in Beecholme Ave in Mitcham for many years. Our family -The Allens were close friends and neighbours of the Votiers and my mother new the brothers when they were growing up.

I do hope I have not troubled you in sending you this email

Regards

Mrs. Votier, Sean, Elaine and Brian,

The news of the passing of Mr. Votier brings much sadness. I have such wonderful memories of him and your family. Your home in Springdale was a second home to me, hanging out at your house, cookouts on the terrace and vacationing with your family in Lake George. Words can't express how saddened I am. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
