It is with great sadness that the family of Raymond G. Knox announces his passing on Sunday, October 30, 2022, at the age of 94.
Raymond (Ray) is lovingly remembered by his children Gerald (Kathy) and Ronald (Wanda); grandchildren Courtney (Matt), Reid (Karly), Connor (Sarah), Drew, Adam (Kara), Veronica (Axl), Riley (Morgan), Duncan (Bea); great-grandchildren Otto and Serenity. His family was important to Ray.
Ray was predeceased by his wife Isabel (Skivington) and his parents Enoch and Louise.
Ray was passionate about farming. He grew up on the century-old Knox homestead near Tuxford. He was innovative in building and welding items required for the farm.
In retirement, Ray continued to take pleasure in spending time on the farm.
Ray and Isabel travelled extensively. He had a great curiosity to see and learn new things, an unlimited knowledge of cars, and an enduring curiosity about planes.
Curiosity and the passion to learn now live on in his sons and grandchildren.
Fond memories comfort us. He teased with love and gentleness, always with a smile on his face.
As time passed, Ray struggled with his memory. Through it all he was affable, soft-hearted, and sweet-tempered.
A Funeral service will be held on Saturday, November 12th at 11:00 a.m. at W.J. Jones & Son Funeral Home Ltd. located at 474 Hochelaga Street West, Moose Jaw, with interment to take place at a later date.
