1945 ~ 2023 (age 78)

It is with heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of Raymond Edward Francis on December 22, 2023, at his home in Yuma, AZ. He was born November 21, 1945, in Kindersley, SK. Ray is lovingly remembered by his wife Beverly (Loran) of 54 years; his son Todd (Tammy) Francis and daughter Kimberly (Kristopher) Lindberg. Grandchildren: Scott, Matthew, Nathan, Bradi, Griffin and Sawyer. As well as many extended family members.

He was predeceased by his daughter Paula Francis, grandson Christian Francis, and his parents Edward and Mai Francis. Ray was an active member in the community where he was a Co-op board member and councilman on the RM of Kindersley. He was often seen at the rink where he coached hockey and ringette. He farmed with his brother Doug, worked for CN Rail and did construction in the winter months. For the last 24 years, he loved traveling to their home in Yuma in the winters where he would sit on his deck chatting with his neighbours and friends.

A celebration of life will be held in Kindersley, Saskatchewan at a future date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Kindersley Integrated Health and Wellness Foundation (details below).
