Raymond Robert Kaufman passed away peacefully on April 17, 2019 at the age of 89.
Predeceased by wife Jean; sister Yvonne; and brothers Fred, Lou and John. Survived by numerous nieces and nephews across Western Canada and cousins in Switzerland.
Loving husband, caring uncle, and loyal friend, Ray was proud of his years as foreman at Alberni Plywood, his volunteer work with Big Brothers, and his Swiss heritage. He enjoyed curling, fishing, and playing cards, and loved to tell stories about his and Jean’s many travels.
A Celebration of Ray’s life will be held at 1:30 pm on Saturday, June 8th at the Alberni Valley United Church, 3747 Church Street, Port Alberni, BC. Thank you to Dr. Lund, the Rainbow Lodge staff, neighbour Peter Finch, and nephew Dean Washington for their care.
