Today is filled with memories
And loving thoughts of you.
All the words and thoughtful things,
That you would say and do.
A day of remembrance, a passing year,
A loving thought, a silent tear,
A little prayer to keep in touch.
We love you and miss you, so very much.
Forever in Our Hearts

MITCHELL, Raymond Francis
June 29, 1947 - March 30, 2014
Raymond Mitchell, father, uncle, grandfather, faithful Friend, reluctantly left this earth Sunday, March 30, 2014 at the age of 66. Cancer finally got him. He died peacefully without pain in his home in Sherwood Park. He was sitting in his favorite chair holding his TV channel changer.
Ray was born in Toronto but he called Alberta his home. Ray got his grade 12 in London, Ontario and although he always said he never went to school on Mondays or Fridays he was very proud of the 86% average. In his early twenties, shortly after his Mom passed away of a broken heart, Ray was invited to Saskatoon by his parents dearest and closest friends Bud and Mary Joan Yates. They took Ray under their wings and gave him a job in real estate and he never looked back.
Ray had three passions in life, his family, golf and his job. Nothing brought him more joy then being in the same room as his sons, grandsons and being able to share in their laughter and lives, although just briefly. Last summer he was able to take his family to the mountains to a cabin where he first took his young sons - he was now able to show his grandsons. It was a beautiful time spent together. Although his last golf game was two summers ago Ray was a seven handy cap golfer, He never did get the chance to cross Pebble Beach off his bucket list. He wanted to visit Rome and Vatican city. He would always say that on earth it was the one place you get the closest to God. Two weeks ago was his last trip to his office and not being able to go to work broke his heart. Ray was very proud of the many accomplishments within the outstanding 40 year career in the home building business he had created.
Ray was preceded in death by big brother James tragically in a car crash (1960), his father Thomas (1967), his beloved mother Georgette (1969) and more recently his big sister Denise Borbely (July 8, 2013. )
Ray is survived by son Lonnie with Rebecca and their children Pearce and Read, his son James all of Sherwood Park, dearest friend and mother of his children Karen LeDrew of Edmonton, his brother-in-law Bill Borbely, niece Catherine Lynn Borbely, nephew David Borbely, two grand-nephews Adam and Austin all of Regina, Saskatchewan.
Ray was an intensely private man but was always the best dressed man in any room. He had a great sense of humour as most that knew him can attest. Words he lived by and taught to his sons, "Be on time" "Do what you say." "Finish what you Start." "Say "Please." and "Thank-You," because manners cost nothing!" Raymond loved deeply and loved for life.
It is with very heavy hearts we share this news of Ray's passing. The family wishes to extend their deepest gratitude and thanks to Dr. Elfiky, Ray was one of his first patients when he began practice in Sherwood Park, Doctors D. Williams and H. Seikaly for never giving up on Ray, because Ray would never give up on himself. "Never, Never, Never, give up" "Go Brady!"
