It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Raymond (Ray) Boyer on Monday, April 27th, 2020, at the age of 75, in his home with his family by his side holding his hand. Survived by his beloved wife and soulmate of 53 years Donna. Proud father of his son Craig (Terri). Cherished Papa to his doll Hanna (Jeff) and Ashley (Predeceased). Dear brother to Gerard (Predeceased), Jeannette (Predeceased), Rita, Suzanne, and Rollande. Special godfather to Brigitte and uncle to many nieces and nephews. He will be missed dearly by his close circuit of friends and extended family. Born on New Years Day, 1945, in Sturgeon Falls, ON, the oldest of six to Oscar and Florida Boyer (both predeceased). Ray was a well-respected businessman and entrepreneur who touched the hearts of many of his clients in the Sudbury area, starting with Boyer’s Floor and Wall Covering and ending with the company that he passed on to his son, Sunswim Pools. Ray brought Home and Leisure shows to Sudbury and along with his friends Len Gauthier and Omer Gagnon they took a Christmas Lights show on Laurelwood Crt and turned it into the Festival of Lights at Science North. Ray was known for his love of Elvis Presley and could be found at the Elvis Presley Festival in Collingwood every year. He enjoyed growing garlic in his garden, visiting the Ottawa Market with his friend Denis Trudeau, and spending the winter holidays in Florida watching the sunset at Rockaway Grill. The family takes great comfort in knowing he will be reunited with his family and best friends Len and Roy. During his short illness Ray received amazing care and the family would like to express special thanks to Dr. Abdulhusein, Dr. Ibrahim, Dr. Mocanu, and all the nurses and hospital staff at Health Sciences North and the Northeast Cancer Centre.
