Obituary

RAYMOND J. FONTAINE
October 30th, 1949 - September 16th, 2020

Ray passed peacefully at home with wife Linda, daughters Monique and Janine at his bedside.
His family were present to say their farewell during the day before he left us.
He leaves behind his mother Leona, sister Diane, brother Gary and nephews. Daughter Monique (Bob), Jake and Victoria, daughter Janine (Stephen), Gaige, Orren and Georgia, son Clint (Christine), Miles and Isabella, sister-in-law Donna (Brian), brother-in-law Gary and sister-in-law Kim, nieces and nephews.

He was a great dad and grandpa. He loved them and left many memories to keep. Summer was his favorite season. Time in the garden, building his famous lawn chairs and of course #1, the golf course with Kelly, Keith and Dwayne. Passionate indeed. He did manage to accumulate 3 holes 'n 1 during his lifetime at the courses.

Ray and Linda were raised in Brooklands, Winnipeg. Times were easier then, good times, best friends Frank and Dave were his growing up buds. Family was close and of course Ray loved his baseball and outdoor hockey. He graduated from high school and was with MTS the following Spring. He was with MTS for 36 years, trained well by Wes McGillvary, they became good friends. Thanks Wes, for all the visits during Rays bad times, he loved you like a brother.

Rays passion for hockey and golf highlighted his life. Jets became his team when they came to Winnipeg, but the Montreal Canadians were always #1. He played with the Rink Rats, Old Time hockey (great times), coached and traveled to games with Clint and Janine's hockey and then the grandkids many activities. He loved to travel. Cuba was our favorite destination, Mexico, many great vacations and of course our #1 trip was to Australia. Clint, Christine, Miles and Isabella showed us the trip of a lifetime. Thank-you. Ray was a strong, loving guy. "His spirit" at the end was always present. He was our Rock. Dad, thanks for helping me find my first car, chauffeuring us from concerts in Winnipeg, sending me to Red River College, babysitting and helping with renovations to our home. I will always make you proud. – Monique

A family service at MacKenzies Funeral Home will take place Friday, September 25th, 2020, grave side to follow. Covid restrictions in place, invitation only.

Thank you, friends and neighbors, for your kindness, flowers and baking. Love you all.
Thank-you, thank-you to my sister Donna and Brian, sister Diane and brother Gary for your love.

Regrets - I have a few, too few to mention but, I did it my way.
