February 28, 1931 ~ January 25, 2014

It is with great sadness

and loving memories that the family of Ray Berube (82) announce his passing at Lake Country Lodge,

Winfield, on January 25, 2014, after complications from pneumonia and heart failure brought on from his stroke on September 18, 2013. Ray was born in Westmount (Montreal)

on February 28, 1931. He is predeceased by his father, Paul (1948) and his mother Helen nee Gates (1981), his brother Gerry and his sister Paula. He is survived by his loving wife of 38 years, Pat, sons Bob (Margaret), Bill, Mike and daughter Lori,

grandchildren Mike, Kurt, Taylor and Brooke, and

great-grandchildren Indy, Brody, Landen and Sophie,

as well as nieces Donna, Lynn, Suzanne, and Brigitte

and various in-laws, friends and neighbours. Ray had a

life-long love of aviation. There is almost no part of Canada that Ray didn’t have first hand experience with. He lived in almost every province and territory and flew into the rest.

He loved the fact that his family came to Canada in the 1600’s, a truly proud Canadian. Ray loved animals. If

desired, in lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to

an animal shelter of your choice. The family would like to

especially thank the staff at Lake Country Lodge for the kindness, care and respect they showed Ray over the last few months. Ray will be cremated and a Celebration of

Life will be held at First Memorial Funeral Home ,

1211 Sutherland Ave, Kelowna on February 21, 2014

at 1:00 PM. Condolences may be sent to the family by
