Raymond Paul

(Ret’d Sgt – Ottawa Police)

(October 22, 1944 – May 6, 2019)

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Ray in the Rosamond Wing of the Almonte General Hospital.  He had endured a lengthy illness with strength and a remarkable sense of humour.  He was a master of the one liner and enjoyed having the last word!  Loving husband and best friend of Ruth.  Devoted brother to Liliane,  predeceased by his son Shawn and sister Denise (Patoine).  Also survived by many loved nieces and nephews.  Sadly missed by Ruth’s children Jason Spreckley (Jennifer), granddaughters Grace and Ella, and Tanya Spreckley (Peter Turner) and granddaughter James.  Affectionately known as “Grandpa Ray” to all!  In keeping with the family wishes there will not be a visitation.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be Celebrated on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 at 11am in Holy Name of Mary Parish (134 Bridge St., Almonte, ON.)  Interment at a later date in the Auld Kirk Cemetery.  Donations in memory of Ray may be made to the Almonte General Hospital Fairview Manor Foundation.
