Young – Raymond Arthur

It is with deep sadness that the family of Raymond Young announce his passing on June 1, 2012. He was predeceased by his father Jack in 1968, sister Barb Ramwell in 1998, great nephew MikeyYoung in 2004, nephew Wayne Peet in 2005, and nephew Grady Capper in 2008.

We will miss him dearly, especially his great sense of humor and his contagious laugh.
Raymond lived his whole life in Duncan and accumulated many friends. He worked as a Cat Operator and in various logging camps until suffering a stroke in 2010. He loved the outdoors, fishing, riding his motorcycle, his cat “Bill”, and a beer or two with friends at “The Oak”.

As far as my memories go back, Raymond was in them. He will be dearly missed by all of my family .

One of my fondest memories of Ray was on Deuchars Drive. I was riding my bike with my sister, the last thing I remember was losing control going down the hill by his house. I woke-up in his house, in a papazan chair. For a second I thought I was laying on a cloud, he was my saviour Thor and he’d taken me up to heaven…. lol. I think I scared him half to death, and he was pretty shaken and panicked until my parents arrived and he handed me over to them. Up until that time I always kind of thought of him as a big burly scary guy…..but I knew that he was a big softy.

I always laugh when I think of dad and Ray running home from school on their lunches to watch All My Children… hehe

I will always remember his laugh….. I’ll miss you Ray. Give my mom a big hug when you see her up there 🙂 <3 My thoughts are with his family.

I’m so sorry to hear of Raymond’s passing. Wow, I can’t believe how quickly life goes by …. So many memories of all the “Young’s” back in the “good old days” of high school life. I often think of you folks and wonder how everyone is doing. My thoughts and prayers are with you Anne, Jim and the rest of the family. Susan
