McGee, Ray

Our beloved Ray McGee passed away peacefully at his home, with loving family by his side on Sunday, May 7, 2017 at the age of 56. The love of Denise’s life (nee Patry) for the past 34 years. Cherished and devoted Dad to Crystal (Derek Bazinet) and Kayla (Chris Auger). Born in Elliot Lake, ON. to Donald (predeceased) and Rita McGee (nee Stoppa). Dear brother of Donna Doucette (Gerry Maxwell), Bonnie (Jerry Lynch), Debbie (Norm St-Jean), Pat and Mike (Claudette Chiasson). Loving uncle to many nieces and nephews. Sadly missed by his in laws Leo and Emelda Patry and friends Ron, Leo and Marty. Ray was a successful entrepreneur and proud owner of Frank's Transmission. He worked hard in everything he did. During his retirement, he enjoyed spending time with family and friends as well as farming, camping, snowmobiling, motorcycling, sightseeing and restoring classic cars. He always made time to help anyone out, whether it be for renovations, repairs or farming. He had a wealth of advice and knowledge to share. He never let his prolonged illness keep him from living and enjoying life. In lieu of flowers, donations made directly to the Northern Cancer Foundation would be appreciated by family. A Celebration of Ray’s Life will be held at St. Alexander’s Church, 100 Gaudette St. in Chelmsford on Friday, May 12 at 10:30 a.m.

  4. It is with sadness that I write these words to Denise, Crystal, Kayla, and the family. I wish you all my deepest sympathy.
    Ray was a caring man, a true friend, a great person and a hard worker. I had the pleasure working alongside him for a few years and on occasion visiting, snowmobiling, and talking about the kids and family.
    He always seemed to find positive in people and never did I hear anyone say anything bad about him. Always ready to lend a helping hand for family and friends and even to total strangers and never expecting anything in return. His greatest asset was his best friend Denise and greatest accomplishment was raising his girls. He loved life and lived it to the fullest. You will be missed my friend, rest in peace.
