MARGINET, Raymond Emile - (22 September 2014) Left us suddenly September 22, 2014. Pre-deceased by his loving wife of 57 years, Maxine, whom he mourned heart & soul. Survived by daughter Kim, son-in-law Steve, grandchildren Keifer, Alex, Allen, Amanda & Steven, great-grandchildren Keenan & Kash, sisters Marie & Maddy, sister-in-law Rose & brother-in-law Gilbert. He has gone on to join family & friends who have made this journey before him. He will once again be re-united with brother Aime, sister Helen & brother-in-law Bob. After leaving Manitoba he spent 25 years in the Navy which included 3 years in Regina as a recruiting officer, a very happy time for them. In Sooke he looked forward to his morning coffee dates with the gang at A&W & then in Colwood he had his Timmy's crew. Dad you & Mom were the best parents a child could ask for, thank-you. Your smiles & ready laugh will live in my heart forever. We will all miss you until the day we meet again & one by one the links in our family chain will join. Please join us for a memorial tea to be held at Sands Funeral Chapel, 317 Goldstream Ave Sunday, September 28 at 1:30 pm. "To live in the hearts of those we leave behind, is never to die."
