Ray Elder

May 7, 1922 – August 30, 2012

An avid golfer, curler, dancer; dedicated husband, father, and friend; Ray has left us at the age of 90. He was born in Kipling, Saskatchewan and joined the CNR as a telegrapher in 1940. He was posted with the RCAF in London, England during World War II where he met and married Irene, also from Saskatchewan. They raised four children in station houses across the Prairies and retired to Qualicum in 1981.

A Special thank you to the staff at The Gardens, who provided great care and empathy.
