In loving memory of Raymond Solomon

Dieppe, NB – With heavy hearts, we say our final goodbyes to Raymond Solomon, who passed away on February 22nd, 2024, at the Moncton Albert Hospice House in Moncton. May he rest in peace.

Born in Killarney, Ontario, Ray was the son of Arthur and Eva Solomon, and brother to Priscillia, Eva, Eugene, Anthony, Anne, Genevieve, and Arthur. He was predeceased by siblings, Donald, and Theresa.

He served in the Canadian Air Force and worked as an electronics technician in Cape Breton and Moncton.

Ray’s journey was one of resilience, joy, and curiosity. His unwavering spirit and compassionate soul was a source of comfort to those around him. A steadfast friend, he cultivated deep connections that transcended time and circumstance. Devoted to his work as a liaison officer between native inmates and prison staff, he was proud of his opportunity to impact lives. His passion for research on tsunamis and glaciers led to the discovery of evidence never before seen or poorly understood.

Loved by everyone who knew him, Ray is survived by his children: John Arthur, Chad, Jennifer, Jeannie, and Christian; his grandchildren: Marilyn, Colby, Sabrina, Amber, Molly, James, Ashley, and Gemma; his great grandchildren, as well as his devoted companion, Annette.

In our hearts, his memory will forever thrive, and he will be dearly missed.

In respect with his wishes, there will no visitation or funeral service.
