Wilfred Nicholas Ray

It is with much sadness and deep sorrow we announce the passing of this legendary man, Our Father, Wilf Ray. Dad took his last breath peacefully as the sun shined brightly early Sunday morning July 11, 2021.

94yrs, Dad, you had an incredible life. An amazing journey filled with lights, camera, microphones and action. Fulfilling your dreams and accomplishing all you set out to be and do. Your Career in Broadcasting started in 1994 and this lead to your own radio show. Known as the “RADIO MAN FOR GOD”!! We are at peace and comfort knowing wholeheartedly you are now at your heavenly home and at the foot of Jesus. Reunited with your Wife Marion, Predeceased by Grandsons Bradley and David jr, & Parents and those before you.
As you told everyone who crossed your path..In your words…Dad “May the rest of your life, be the best of your life”!!
We will miss you Daddy, Our forever HERO, you were the very best to us. Wilf will be lovingly treasured and remembered by his 3 Daughters Sharon, Robin (Kevin) Leeann. 4 Grandchildren, 7 Great Grandchildren and his loyal best friend & companion TINO. Dad’s 4 legged Son.
DAD… We will be forever and eternally grateful for you.

Big shout out to the irreplaceable Doctors, Nurses, and caregivers at Mission Memorable Hospital. Bless you all.

A small private (due to restrictions), going home service will be held August 6, 2021 in West Vancouver. However, a “Celebration of Life” will follow up at a later date. TBA.
