Born January 11th , 1922 in the homestead farmhouse south of Cardinal, Manitoba, Raymond grew up helping his parents on the farm. He then spent several years working out of province in bush camps and mines. He eventually started farming his own land west of Notre Dame where he met and married Lucienne Pantel, with whom he spent the next 63 years. During that time, they moved back to his family homestead.

Raymond was a passionate man who cared deeply about his family, his culture, farming and his horses. He had numerous interests including sports, politics and travelling.

His family will remember him fondly for his playful teasing, interesting nicknames, animated discussions and strong opinions. Papa, we appreciate everything you did for us and we will miss you dearly. Adieu, cher Papa, on t’aime beaucoup!

The family would like to thank the staff at the Foyer Notre Dame as well as all of the various health care professionals who tended to Papa over the years.
