June 1, 1924 - May 13, 2018
It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Raymond Beaulac on Sunday, May 13, 2018 at the age of 93. He passed away peacefully with family by his side.
Raymond was born at Eldred, Sk. June 1, 1924 to Rodolph and Delvina. Raymond was raised with his nine siblings on a farm, on which he later raised his family. He married Reine Duret, his beloved wife of 68 years. Together they raised 8 children. Besides working the farm, he enjoyed hunting and fishing. After selling the farm, he moved to Debden, working as a carpenter. He was meticulous at his work, which was evident in the superiority of everything he constructed. Prince Albert later became their place of residence where he managed apartment buildings. His retirement years were later spent in Debden, but he always kept himself busy till his health prevented him from continuing. It was at this time that they moved together, first to a personal care home, Heritage Manor, in Debden, and later, by himself, to the Whispering Pines Home in Canwood. His saddest moment was leaving Mom to move to a facility with a higher level of care.
He was most proud of his family. He especially loved getting together with everyone on camping weekends or Christmas, Easter and New Years get togethers. He loved to tease his grandchildren and joining them in on any sport, be it softball, soccer or dodge frisbee.
