Dear Frances, Rodney, and Bryan.
So sorry to hear of Raymond's passing. He was such a sweet gentleman. One of the best. I can still hear his soft voice and see his kind smile. It was always a pleasure to see him come into the gym for his daily workout after he finished his round of skating at the rink. So full of energy! I remember him saying that he would only have short naps, but if you sleep hard for a short while, it gave you enough rest! Lol I am so very, very glad that I got to know Raymond and all of you. God bless you...Trina

Our condolences to Frances and sons. We are thinking of you at this sad time. Mary & Bob Dippel— Mary Allen, February 4, 2024
Our sincere condolences to Frances & Family. I have fond memories of skating at the Senior’s skate here in Mount Forest & enjoying friendly conversation with Raymond who was the salt of the earth. Going back 65 years or so I can remember going to watch a hockey team consisting solely of members of the Ross Family who would play exhibition games against various local teams.
Raymond was a member of that team as well as the Teviotdale Intermediate hockey team. We will miss you Raymond & wish Peace to all family & friends.
Larry & Jackie.
Raymond was a wonderful neighbour to Jim and I for many years. A talented gardener and always willing to share the benefits of his hard work.
Our most sincere sympathy to Francis and families,
