Raymond Lewis

March 28, 1930 - February 29, 2012


It is with extreme sorrow that the family of Ray Lewis announces the passing of a great husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather & brother. He was called to his heavenly home early on the morning of Feb. 29th surrounded by his loving family.
Born March 28th, 1930 at Hanna AB. He was raised in Hanna; and later Athabasca, AB. By the age of 15, he left home to work odd jobs, finally ending up in Calgary to begin his career in sales. He moved to Edmonton, where he met his lifelong sweetheart Leona Shantz. They married June 21, 1953. Their union was blessed with four children, two daughters and two sons. Ray and Leona purchased a business in Red Deer, which became a great success. In 1970 Ray and Leona relocated their family to Chilliwack BC. Over the next years Ray & Leona started and ran several other successful businesses until retirement in 1998. His greatest loves were his wife, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, which were many. They loved to travel and were snowbirds for many years. He also had a great fondness for new cars and homes, fishing, & hunting. At any given time one could find Ray, nose buried in an entrepreneurial magazine, always looking for new opportunities.
He had a most wonderful sense of humor, always ready with a joke, and an easy laugh. He made others laugh as well and will be sorely missed. He leaves behind his loving wife Leona, of nearly 59 years, daughters Connie (Bruce), Myrna (Sean), sons Shane (Sharon) and Tracy (Cindy), numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren and 2 sisters, Thelma & Lenore. Heartfelt thanks to his caregivers at Chwk. Hospital Emergency and I.C.U. and Cheam Village.
He touched so many lives and will live on in our hearts forever. No funeral by his request.
