Raymond Lee Boucher

August 30, 2020

Life begins and yet it sometimes ends in such a way that it seems the whole world has come crashing down. It crashed for our family on August 30, 2020, when Raymond Lee Boucher gave up his very courageous battle with cancer. A lifelong resident of West Jefferson, Ray was born on July 10, 1945, to Ray and Betty who preceded him in death.

Married to his wife Sandy, for 52 years, they were blessed with two wonderful sons Keith (Cindy) and JJ, and his precious grandchildren Gabriella, Noah, and Josephine. Also left to miss him are sister-in-law Joan (Tom) Buehler and children Mark, Jimmy (Marie) and, Jerry (Jennifer); sister-in-law Anita Stringer and children Lois Larkin, Melissa (Heath) Brewer, and Niki (Sean) Lee, also survived by special uncle Claude (Laura) Kronk; other nieces and nephews Lindsay Buehler (the daughter he never had) and her son, his little buddy, James Elias, Lee (Alexis) Buehler, Aston Buehler, Kriston Buehler, Maria Carr, Johnny (Jenny) Stringer, Tami (Dan) Vail, David (Tracy) Stringer, Kaleigh Ansley, and Spencer Ansley. Also, surviving are stepsisters Paula (Mark) Guyton and Gloria (Greg) Garrison. Ray was also proud to be called “Poppa Booock” by many of his kids’ friends.

Ray’s greatest accomplishment in life was the unconditional love he had for his family. He was also immensely proud to have been twice-named Fan of The Year by the Roughrider Football Team.

A very special thank-you to Shawn Buescher and others who made sure Ray was able to watch the Roughriders he loved so dearly and to all the friends and people who prayed for him and gave their time to help us through this difficult journey. You will always hold a special place in the family’s heart. Thanks also to Dr. Garwood and Compassus Hospice.
