Raymond Day Obituary

Raymond Gerald Day of Cochin, Saskatchewan passed away on Friday, October 27 at the age of 90 years old.

Ray was the loving father of: Beverley-Ann, Gordon (Georgette), Kenneth (Dolores), Mark (Mickey), Barbara (Brian), Sarah (Brian) and Christine (Wayne) and will be dearly missed by his friends and extended family. He was deeply committed to his community of Cochin where he and his eleven siblings grew up on Day’s farm. He and Glen continued to live on the farm. He was predeceased by his beloved wife, Glen (May 22, 2023 at the age of 90); his parents: Marguerite and Philip Day; his in-laws: Winnefred and Cyril Riddell; his brothers: Bernard and Noel and sister, Marguerite; sisters-in-law: Shirley Day, Betty Day; brother-in-law: Ike Huxley and Christine Tucker-Day.

Raised on the lake, Ray attended Delorme School in Cochin and later North Battleford’s St. Thomas College. He was a sharpshooter in Cadets. Ray and Glen married in 1953. His love, after his family, was farming. He raised animals, grain crops and ran a Market Garden. Many people who never actually met him still remember stopping at Day’s Market Garden each summer. He was an active member of the community, especially the school and the Church. He will be remembered for his honesty, respect, kindness and generosity.

He and Glen will be watching over us as they go through eternity together.

Those wishing to pay their respects may do so at St. Rose de Lima Roman Catholic Church in Cochin, SK on Saturday, November 4, 2023. Mass of Christian Burial will be at 1:00 PM with Father Greg Elder as celebrant. Internment will follow at Cochin cemetery.

If desired, memorial donations in Ray’s name may be made to the Cochin Cemetery Fund - Box 88, Cochin, SK S0M 0L0. Arrangements have been entrusted to Eternal Memories Funeral Service and Crematorium – Vanessa Macnab Funeral Director.
