"RAF" 2003 Obituary


RAFUSE o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2003-12-10 published
RAFUSE, Guy Albert
Guy ''Ray'' RAFUSE died peacefully at Saint Mary's hospital on December 8, 2003, after a brief illness, 6 days after his 94th birthday. Ray was born and spent his early years in Conqueral Bank, Nova Scotia. At the age of 16, he moved to New York City and worked at the Bell Labs. During the depression, he returned to Bridgewater, Nova Scotia where he ran his own Photographic studio. At the beginning of the war, he moved to Montreal to work with Northern Electric, where he met Fernande (COTÉ,) who was to become his beloved wife, his constant companion, and his closest friend. He and Fern were married after the war, and enjoyed over 57 years of happiness together. Together they raised a son, Robert, to whom they gave all the opportunities they never had. Ray retired from the Northern in 1970, enjoyed a long and active retirement, and only recently moved into a retirement home with Fern. He is survived by his loving wife, his son Robert, and his daughter-in-law Judy. The family would like to thank the staff of the Griffith-McConnell Residence, as well as the nurses and doctors at Saint Mary's who comforted him in his final days. At Ray's own request, there will be no service of visitation. For all those who knew Ray, please take time to remember him as he was: strong, quiet, private, determined; a great father, and a loving husband.
