Obituary

Raymond Jean Dupuis passed away suddenly on September 13th, 2020 at the age of 81, to his family's great sorrow. He will be lovingly remembered by his adored daughters Rayanne and Camille, his sons-in-law Luciano Nardi and Michel Wibault. Papa Ray will especially be missed by his beloved grandchildren, Luca, Samuel and Elisabeth who were a constant source of joy, laughter and pride for him. His sisters Estelle Fortier, Marjolaine Parent and Jacqueline Côté mourn his passing as do his brothers and sisters-in-law and his many nieces and nephews as well as his dear friend Jodi Johnson. He is warmly welcomed into the after-life by his late wife Frances Ann (Matko), as well as his 3 big brothers Gérald, Aurèle and Yvan and his sister Isabelle. Ray was born in Notre Dame du Nord (QC) moved to Kapuskasing, Ontario in 1961, where he played defense for the GM’s and worked at Spruce Falls. He moved with his family to Sudbury in 1981, when he became the owner of the Château Guay Motel (or the Château Ray as it became affectionately known to faithful patrons). Since 1992 he has enjoyed retirement in his home on Ramsey Lake, his faithful dogs Lucky and Mazy by his side. All who visited felt welcome there. A Junior A hockey player in the days of the original six NHL teams, Ray remained an avid athlete most of his life, excelling at every sport he practiced, with a special affection for golf in his later years. Anyone who knew Ray will miss his incredible energy, his (often inappropriate) jokes, quick wit, intelligence, generosity, warmth and his unique ability to engage absolutely anyone in conversation.

Memorial visitation will be held at the Jackson & Barnard Funeral Home, 233 Larch Street, Sudbury on Thursday, October 1st, 2020 where friends may gather from 2-4pm. A service will be held in the R. J. Barnard Chapel at 4pm. Due to COVID-19 directives, a maximum of 50 people at a time will be allowed in the visitation room and a maximum of 80 people in the chapel. Masks are mandatory. For those who cannot attend the service, it will be live streamed at:
https://www.oneroomstreaming.com/view/authorise.php?k=160038089877365.
In lieu of flowers, a fitting tribute to Ray and his love for animals would be donations to the Ontario SPCA Sudbury District Animal Center.

C'est avec immense tristesse qu'est annoncé le décès de Raymond Jean Dupuis le 13 septembre, 2020 à l'âge de 81 ans. Il vivra dans la mémoire de ses deux filles adorées, Rayanne et Camille, de ses gendres Luciano Nardi et Michel Wibault. Papa Ray manquera surtout à ses trois petits enfants bien-aimés Luca, Samuel et Elisabeth. Ceux-ci étaient source de bonheur, rires et fierté. Raymond sera aussi regretté par ses très chères soeurs Estelle Fortier, Marjolaine Parent, Jacqueline Côté et ses belles-soeurs et beaux-frères, ainsi que ses nombreux neveux et nièces. Son amie Jodi Johnson éprouve aussi une grande tristesse à son absence. Il est accueilli très chaleureusement dans l'au-delà par son épouse défunte Frances Ann (née Matko), par ses trois grands frères, Gérald, Aurèle et Yvan, et par sa soeur Isabelle. Raymond est né à Notre-Dame-du Nord (QC) et s'est installé en 1961 à Kapuskasing où il jouait au hockey et travaillait à Spruce Falls. Avec sa famille, il est ensuite parti en 1981 à Sudbury pour devenir le propriétaire du motel Château Guay (aussi appelé le Château Ray à l'époque par ses clients les plus fidèles). Depuis 1992, il profitait pleinement de sa vie de retraité dans sa maison aux abords du lac Ramsey, ses chiens fidèles, Lucky et Mazy, toujours à ses côtés. Tous étaient toujours les bienvenus et chaleureusement accueillis chez Raymond. Un athlète doué, il a joué dans sa jeunesse dans la ligue Junior A à l'époque des six équipes d'origine de la NHL. Il était un passionné de la pratique de plusieurs sports en amateur de haut niveau. Dans la deuxième partie de sa vie, il a été une présence régulière et appréciée sur les terrains de golf dans la région de Sudbury. Tous qui ont croisé Raymond se souviendront de son énergie débordante, de son sens d'humour (souvent inapproprié), de sa vivacité d'esprit, de sa générosité et de son don unique de pouvoir démarrer une conversation avec n’importe qui. Des dons auprès de la SPCA de l'Ontario (district de Sudbury) au nom de Raymond, soulignant ainsi son amour pour les animaux, serait un geste apprécié par la famille.

Des visites de souvenir auront lieu le jeudi, 1er octobre au salon funéraire Jackson &Barnard, 233 Larch Street, Sudbury. La famille et les amis pourront s'y retrouver de 14h-16h. Une célébration de vie aura lieu à la chapelle R.J. Barnard à 16h. En raison des directives liées à la COVID-19, un maximum de 50 personnes à la fois seront autorisées dans la salle de visite et un maximum de 80 dans la chapelle. Les masques sont obligatoires. Pour ceux qui ne peuvent pas être présents à la cérémonie, il sera possible de la visionner en live-stream en cliquant le lien suivant: https://www.oneroomstreaming.com/view/authorise.php?k=160038089877365

Rayanne, Camille & Families,
Our condolences are extended to all of you on the passing of your father. Our thoughts and prayers will be with you today as you bid your Farewell.
Ray provided a lot of laughs to my parents, “Babi and Ju-Ju”. If Heaven has never had a hockey or golf tournament, I am sure he has already organized one.
With the current CoVid numbers rising, we are sorry that we cannot extend our condolences in person. We hope, during this difficult time, that you can focus on the joy that your father brought to so many people.
Jean & Al Sopel

Ray loved his family and talked about them all the time. His family and his little dogs were about the most important things in his life. I am looking at this picture of my friend and I can only laugh and imagine what he would say if I told him how much I will miss him. Mora ( he never, ever pronounced my name properly) we all gotta go sometime. It would be something like that, I think. Ray, always, I mean, always made you feel better. He was funny. He was generous. He was quick. I don't think I ever saw him get angry unless it was over an animal. I have many, many memories of being on the pontoon, being out at Ray's house, running into him. He made you feel like a million bucks just by making fun of your clothes because you knew that this meant that he really liked you. The one and only original bon vivant, man-about-town, dapper, Maurice Chevalier/Charlie Chaplin in yellow sunglasses. What a gift to have known this man.

Our deepest condolences to you Rayanne and Camy, as well as to your families. I was so very sad to hear of your Dad's passing, and I know both my parents (Gerry & Marg Boucher) are completely heartbroken at the loss of their friend of over 50 years. I will always cherish the fun family trips the Dupuis, Labelle, and Boucher families went on. About ten years ago, our daughter was playing in a soccer tournament in Sudbury and Ray came to watch. By the end of the game, he had all the parents in the palm of his hand, all falling over laughing their heads off at all the stuff he said! They all told me afterwards that they wanted him at all the games! He was definitely a larger than life character filled with a joie de vivre that was contagious. I know his beloved Fran is waiting for him, and I hope you both take solace knowing the two of them are together again. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
