GRAY, Ralph Allan – (Retired School Teacher) Passed away peacefully, at The Village of Riverside Glen on Thursday, June 4, 2020.
Dear brother-in-law of Joyce Gray of London and loving uncle of Vicki, Donald, Sandy, Kelly and Danielle. Special uncle of Kimberley, Harry, Charlotte and Harper Young and Carolee, John, Davis and Lacey Bolt. Will be sadly missed by his partner, caregiver, protector Roger Wise of Guelph. Fondly remembered by cousins, many friends, former colleagues and students. Predeceased by his parents the former Reitta Noble and Arthur Gray and his brothers Gordon and Donald.
Ralph will always be remembered for his thoughtfulness, his sense of humour and his love of animals. His presence in our lives was a gift we treasured and shall always miss.
To honour Ralph’s wishes cremation has taken place and there will be no visitation or memorial service. Remember Ralph as he was in life and rather than mourn his passing his wish would be for everyone to celebrate his life and to keep his spirit alive by helping others as he so often did.
A private family graveside service will take place at a later date with interment in the family plot in Victoria Cemetery, Drayton Ontario. Arrangements entrusted to the WALL-CUSTANCE FUNERAL HOME & CHAPEL, 519-822-0051 or wallcustance.com - Condolences can be sent to the family via the funeral home website below Ralph’s notice.
