LINGE, Raymond Allen

December 16, 1938 – Kamloops, British Columbia
April 30, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

It is with great sadness that the family of Raymond Allen Linge announces his passing with his family by his side on Monday, April 30, 2018 at the age of 79 years.

Ray will be missed but never forgotten by his family and friends. He was born in Kamloops, BC, to Herbert (Shorty) William Linge and Annie Pearl Forrest. Ray was the third of four boys. He was in the Air Force from 1956 to 1958. On returning to Kamloops he met his future wife Colleen. They lived in Williams Lake and Vancouver but permanently settled in Calgary where they raised their two daughters, Debbie and Melody. Colleen sadly passed away in December of 2016. They both enjoyed spending time with their grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Ray was a Meat Cutter by trade, working for Loblaws and Super Value. In 1978 he became involved in the Union and was elected President of the United Foods and Commercial Works, (UFCW 373A). The 1981 car accident left him unable to work, so he spent his days with his family and friends.

Ray was predeceased by his wife Colleen, his parents and his eldest brother Hugh. Ray is survived by his two brothers and sisters-in-law Fred and Angela Linge and Patrick and Patsy Linge; daughters and son-in-law Debbie and Arthur Wehnes and Melody Linge; grandchildren Cory and Jenn, Danielle and Justin, Candace and Tyler, Evan, Cara and Brendan, and Gerhard; great-grandchildren Clayton, Caleb, McKenzie, Ayden, Brody, Calin, Conrad, Anthony, Carter, Carson, and Jordan; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and extended family both in Alberta and British Columbia.
