We regret to announce the passing of Raymond Philip Bosse on January 5th 2014. Ray passed suddenly and unexpectedly in his home at the age of 62, far too soon.
Ray was born in Vancouver on April 25th 1951. Shortly after father Leo and mother Lucy along with older brother Larry moved to Castlegar. Not long after youngest brother Daniel was born. After graduating from Stanley Humphries Ray did some traveling abroad. He enjoyed hunting and fishing with his father and later with his friends and eventually with his two sons Mark and Rob. Ray was a member of the Fish and Wildlife Association, Downtown Business Association and Search and Rescue. He worked in and later took over the family business Bosse’s Jewellery along with his brother Larry. When not working he took his boys skiing at Red Mountain and spent many weekends at hockey tournaments and swim meets. Many great times and laughs were shared on the numerous family vacations. After retiring he spent a lot of time riding his bike, cooking and visiting with family. Above all things he enjoyed spending time with his sons. Ray was a kind, giving person who put a smile on your face and made you laugh. He will be so dearly missed by Mark, Rob, Lucy, Danny, Larry and friends but will always be with us in our hearts.
The family would like to extend a very big heartfelt thanks to family and friends for their love and support.
A celebration of life is being held Saturday 18th of January at the Kinnard Hall 2320 Columbia Ave at 11:00 am.
