Flynn, Raymond Dale
June 26, 1937 – July 27, 2011
Ray was born in Powell River and raised in Tahsis and Victoria. He passed away peacefully at the Campbell River and District Hospital after complications from Multiple Sclerosis, which he had for 26 years. Ray is survived by Kathy, his wife of 41 years; his two children Tricia (Ross) and Chris (Danielle); three grandchildren Tyson, Ryland and Rachel. He will also be sadly missed by his brother Tom, sister-in-law Lorraine, brother-in-law Bob, Aunt Rena, his cousins and many nieces and nephews. Ray was predeceased by his sister Pat Martin and brothers Doug and Denis Flynn.
Ray’s joys in life were spending time with his grandchildren, family and friends. He loved to entertain and play his spoons.
Our family would like to thank all the Home Care Workers that Ray has had for the last 20 years, of which many have become good friends, Dr. P. MacNeill and all the wonderful nurses at the hospital who have been so supportive and kind.
A private celebration of Ray’s life was held. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the M.S. Society of Canada, P.O. Box 656, Campbell River, BC, V9W 6J3 under the name of “Ray’s Girls” – who participate in the MS Walk every year.
