Ray will be missed by all those lucky enough to have known him.
Ray was born May 19th, 1941 to Bruno and Alice Petovello. Becoming the eldest of their 5 children.
Ray loved the farm and would have been happy to stay but with two capable brothers following behind him, he chose to go to SAIT, becoming a heavy duty mechanic.
Ray was an extremely hard worker who took pride in all he did. Ray was a perfectionist putting all his heart and effort into all he did from mechanics to doing dishes. He lived his life ruled by his heart. In his off time Ray enjoyed all sports. Dancing, baseball, curling, golf, watching hockey and football, playing all card and table games.
Ray retired at the age of 71 to enjoy the remainder of his life with his new wife Rose. They spent those last 10 years singing, dancing, visiting family while touring North America. Enjoying their motor home, towing their joy - a Can- Am Spider touring 3 wheel motorcycle and wintering in San Felipe Mexico .
Ray is now pain free resting with his parents and much loved sisters Evelyn Hook and Eileen Brundige, who, like Ray left us far too soon.
He is survived by his wife Rose, his two sons Jeffrey W., and Bradley D.
whom Ray dearly loved. His two cherished brothers Brian (Mary) and Wayne (Colleen), treasured nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Family was deeply important to Ray he cherished each and every one - they resided in his heart at all times and will continue to rest there.
