April 24, 1924 – September 1, 2021
Raymond Blake McCarthy, age 97 years, passed away peacefully in his home in Vancouver, B.C. on September 1, 2021.
He is predeceased by his wife of nearly 70 years, Grace M. McCarthy, his son Calvin, three brothers and one sister. Lovingly survived by his daughter Mary McCarthy Parsons (Barry, deceased in 2020) and grandchildren The Reverend Canon Christopher Parsons (Anke), Dr. Matthew Parsons (Mary), and MSN Shannon Ernst (Thomas).
Ray lived to see his first great grandson, Arnold, born to join his four great granddaughters, Hannah, Lucia, Bronwyn and Penelope.
Ray will be remembered for his amazing sense of humour, his incredible business and political savvy, and his astonishing ability to know the life story of everybody he met, in just five minutes of meeting them!
A family gathering was held on September 21, 2021 at St. John’s Shaughnessy Anglican Church, Vancouver, with Mother Elizabeth Ruder Celiz officiating. If so desired, donations in Ray’s name may be made to the CH.I.L.D. Foundation, Suite 201, 2150 Western Parkway, UBC Campus, Vancouver, B.C. V6T 1V6 or through the website www. child.ca.
