LOMHEIM, Raymond John

December 15, 1943- Cardiff, Wales

January 29, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta

 

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved father, husband to Grace Ann Lomheim (predeceased) and friend to many, on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at the age of 70 years.

Ray served his country proudly in the Royal Canadian Navy and worked for over 35 years at Canada Safeway.  Ray was very loyal, and a hard worker with the utmost integrity.  He was generous, kind and a true gentleman who always put his family and friends first.  Ray had a great love of animals and always stood up for those who could not stand up for themselves.  Our father was a simple man with a big heart who loved nothing more than to give. 

Rest in peace dad, you will be truly missed by those who love you.

Ray is survived by his three children, Kristina, Laura (Simon) and Michael (daughter-in-law Kendra). He will be missed by his nieces Kathy and Shannon (Harvey) and his nephews John and Doug and their families. Ray was predeceased by his sister Pat Cobb and her husband Roy Cobb. 

At Ray’s request, no formal service will be held.  Those who wish to pay their respects may do so in a manner they best see fit. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

 

In living memory of Ray Lomheim, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Calgary, AB, T2S 2L5, Telephone:  403-243-8200.

  10. I always looked at Uncle Ray like he was such a character! All of my memories of Uncle Ray include a funny story re-enacted by him, or told about him. Being in his presence, I was assured an uncontrollable belly laugh. I will always remember the time he drove out over night from Calgary to visit us in Mission and he cried the whole day as he missed Auntie Grace and all of the kids so much, he had to turn around and go right back again! You are a good Character in my family story Uncle Ray, much love to you.
    Shannon, Harvey and Maya

  13. Kristina, Laura and Mike and family: It is with sadness and a heavy heart that I learned of the passing of Ray. My mom (Betty Lomheim Isaac), called me to let me know of Ray’s passing. We have fond memories of the times we spent together when we were all younger. In those days we spent more extended family times celebrating birthdays, anniversaries and weekends with the Lomheims. Please know that our hearts are with your family and may the Lord comfort you and keep you in His care. The Warnick and Isaac families.
